Cameron, Camp­bell re- sign with Gi­ants

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

GREATER Western Syd­ney have jumped at re- sign­ing coach Leon Cameron to 2020, be­liev­ing sta­bil­ity will bring con­sis­tent AFL dom­i­nance.

Cameron has set his sights on top- four fin­ishes ev­ery year for the rest of his ten­ure, with the Gi­ants lock­ing him in well be­fore his con­tract had been due to ex­pire in late 2018. The Gi­ants’ highly rated foot­ball man­ager Wayne Camp­bell will also re­main to 2020.

Gi­ants chief ex­ec­u­tive David Matthews said the de­ci­sion to re- sign the pair was not taken lightly, be­liev­ing in the im­por­tance of on- field suc­cess to help the fledg­ling club thrive.

“We can’t af­ford to make ma­jor mis­takes with ma­jor de­ci­sions,” Matthews said. “We don’t want our club to be char­ac­terised by any sort of in­sta­bil­ity at all.”

Cameron said his de­ci­sion to stay had noth­ing to do with con­vinc­ing the club’s in­de­mand stars to do like­wise.
