Greg Bradley has been appointed ACE’s new Female Director of Coaching and will oversee the girls’ teams from Under 9 upwards.
He takes over from Jamie Sanckson and brings a wealth of coaching experience over many years at all levels to the position.
Just last season Greg, pictured above left with Jason Gilbert, coached the ACE Under 11 Girls, Moreton Bay United Under 16 Girls and ACE Men Reserves.
He was named Football Brisbane’s Male Coach of the Year for steering the ACE Reserves to the Premiership and Grand Final double, unbeaten in 24 games.
Greg has also been appointed Moreton Bay United (MBU) Head of Female Development for the Under 14 and Under 16 squads and coach of the Under 23 Women for 2022.
“We appreciate and thank Jamie Sanckson for the work he did in 2020 and 2021 and are expecting more great things from the women’s senior teams in 2022,” ACE Junior Vice-President Jason Gilbert said.
“We’re excited with Greg taking on this role and the link between the female programs at ACE and the pathway into MBU and beyond going forward.
“Greg has been involved with the female programs at ACE and MBU for a long time and has a good understanding of where they stand.
“The future of the program at ACE is in good hands.”
Greg already has plans to run free off-season coaching clinics for girls as well as a come-and-try day before next year’s sign-on.
“I’m delighted to have this opportunity to continue the club’s work in this area,” he said. “I’d like to have a girls’ team in every age group.
“Girls want to see and be part of a good program which will give them a chance to improve and possibly move up to the NPL.
“NPL doesn’t have a team for every age, so if a player misses out I want them to know they came come to ACE, improve and have a chance to move back up.”
