Jade, 39 years, was one of the foremost SANFL footballers, of the 2000’s.

He called time on his SANFL career at the end of the 2012 season. In 2015 Jade assumed the role as Senior Coach for the Athelstone Football Club and developed a strong program, culminating in this year winning the Division 2 premiership.

Club CEO, Luke Powell said “We are thrilled to appoint Jade as our Senior Coach for season 2020 and onwards, Jade has gained great experience in running a successful program at Athelstone Football Club and excelled in all the criteria’s we were looking for.

Took 10 days and in that period Jade coached a premiership, Id guess this was stitched up a while ago.

Welcome to the club Jade

Given he has not come from the AFL system I expect he will bring a fairly straightfoward coaching style that players will find fairly easy to adapt to. He seemed to be widely respected as a player so hopefully this translates to how he is viewed by the players.

Your first two priorities are to recruit us a midfielder with some speed and to get us a tall forward who can kick straight!!!!!

Hopefully now we’ve had the best talker, we end up with the best man for the task, which will require considerable
recruiting, man management and football strategy.
Sheedy shouldn’t have much trouble reinvigorating a playing group that was confused, uninterested and at times lacking basic
skills.
If Luke Powell can get some quality key forwards into the club :oops: Sheedy will have a reasonable chance to have the Eagles
in the five again.
Being runner up last year may be all the motivation Sheedy needs, fingers crossed.
Last time we had a Sturt player coach us worked out great , Bruce Winter 93 :D

Please refresh my fading memory. What exactly were the incentives? And didn't Balme set the early foundations?

Massive zone changes . Do you think those two clubs at that point could be dominant ? Great coach Balme but dont think they never had a leg up. Of course they did.

Not sure what leg-up they had. The West Torrens zone was halved when Woodville came in, then the two halves were merged again in 1990.

I’m hearing Sheedy has come in and got the big broom out. Massive changes at Oval Ave already.
