The Western Magpies Football department and senior committee wish to congratulate 2017 Senior Assistant Coaches Sam Long and Adam Holland on their recent appointments to Head Coaching positions at Yeronga Devils in QFA Div 1 Competition and Redcliffe Tigers in QFA Div 3 Competition respectively.
Both Sam and Adam were valuable contributors in their time at the club and will be sorely missed in 2018. As both clubs play in different competitions to the Magpies, we also have no hesitation in wishing both gents a hearty good luck for 2018 seasons! (Especially Longy, who will still be having a kick on Friday nights with the Woodies)
