THE Perth An­gels Foot­ball Club an­nounced the ap­point­ment of Gerry O’Dea as new se­nior coach for 2016

O’Dea, cur­rently head­ing Yacht­ing WA, pre­vi­ously worked for years at the WA Foot­ball Com­mis­sion as the Fal­cons district man­ager, re­spon­si­ble for tal­ent de­vel­op­ment pro­grams and district coach­ing co-or­di­na­tion.

He then held the po­si­tion of chief ex­ec­u­tive at West Perth Foot­ball Club from 2009-2013, work­ing closely with the Fal­con District de­vel­op­ment staff.

Perth An­gels FC pres­i­dent Kristy Geuer wel­comed the ap­point­ment and said the An­gels would ben­e­fit from O’Dea’s strong WAFL de­vel­op­ment back­ground and skills train­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

“We have an en­thu­si­as­tic and com­mit­ted se­nior squad and a tal­ented youth team; we’re look­ing for­ward to the train­ing ex­pe­ri­ence and guid­ance Gerry will pro­vide,” she said.

O’Dea said he was im­pressed with the at­ti­tude and cul­ture of the Perth An­gels and was look­ing for­ward to work­ing with the play­ers.
