Roy Laird’s last season coaching

All discussions to do with the SANFL

Last week at Elizabeth, AS we came off the ground after the little cup presentation, Joel Cross did not go to the South rooms but went straight around to the Centrals rooms where he was stopped from going in.

John Platten came to the door to see what he wanted

After telling John what he wanted, John escorted him in to offer his congratulations to Roy Laird his outstanding success and achievements.

Pity that did not happen out on the ground but I for one think it's great that Crossy recognised Roy for all that he has done, not only for Centrals but for being a voice against the fee ride that the AFL clubs get in our league.

An outstanding career as a player and coach comes to end this Saturday. His legacy is great and will surely become a club hall of fame legend.

NO. Daryl Hicks implemented the white guernsey and socks. Kerley wanted to change the guernsey but wasn't able to, he did bring in better socks though. In fact when the company delivered the new socks they were incorrectly designed in that they were white in the bottom third. Management were just going to take thenm but Kerley made them send them back and made the company send the correct ones.

Daryl Hicks also implemented a better playing culture.


Sorry, you’ve misunderstood stood me.
My post meant to say that Kerley wanted to get rid of the white guernsey/socks.
Depends who you talk to I guess, but Centrals people involved with the club that I know told me firsthand that Kerley was the one who changed the club.


Kerleys name is never mentioned when Club Culture is discussed. He was nowhere as impactful as the Club had hoped for. Clearly semi-retired as a coach at that stage.

Make no doubt Alan Stewart is the Father of CDFC! Roy is the Heir Apparent!

Have you listened the the Conversation with Cornsey - Ray McLean from Leading Teams? There's a bit of chat about Stewart and the infancy of the Leading Teams concept being used at Centrals. I suggest a listen in for Dogs fans.

Kerley was just the last of the coaches that never got the CDFC over the line at all at finals time, just making them was still far too readily accepted as an achievement in the footy psyche out here when he left.

If memory serves, the trophy cabinet in the entrance to the old club-rooms was loaded with all manner of gear - much not even footy related. As I understand it, it was Stewart that insisted the Club "get rid of all this crap" from the cabinet as part of having every supporter and club person at the CDFC more focussed on the one thing every club playing in the SANFL should be - the TSH Trophy.

I would check your source. 100% guarantee no announcements will be made within the next few days. Be weeks at least. He may or may not get the job but a long way from announcing anything.

You to seem in the know, so he wasn’t approached by the club only for the club to be told he’ll wait till Athelstone finish the season then talk?

*Note- apology’s I thought Athelstone season finished yesterday but it was the 2nd semi

100% improvement on wins from 2018 to 2019, seems a cert.
