The Under 19s in 2015 will have a new coach. His name is Adam Lagerewskij (Lagga-roo-ski). Adam was appointed last week and is looking forward to getting to know the boys and working hard to prepare them for senior football. Adam has taken some time for a bit of Q&A to allow everyone at Skye to gain a bit of insight into who he is before you meet him. We are excited to have Adam on board and look forward to him joining our great coaching team this coming preseason.
