Club Statement – Season 2017 and Beyond


At the Best & Fairest Count on Saturday Night, President Russell Young announced that Mark Beck would be the Senior Coach of the Hobart Football Club for the tenure of the 2017/2018 seasons. Russell recognised the significant time and effort of outgoing coach Steven Woods over the past three seasons. Steve guided us through a troublesome period starting with only 3 players and saw us reach the finals in Season 2016. Steve will be remembered by players and supporters as a great Hobart person.

The Hobart Tigers Football Club would also like to announce that accompanying Mark Beck as Senior coach for the 2017 and 2018 seasons, are Heath Neville and Luke Sullivan as assistants. The coaching group hopes to build on the continual improvement in culture and most importantly performance over the last three years. They acknowledge the wonderful people at the club, and they invite anyone who wants to be part of building the most professional side in the SFL. Coaching appointments for the Reserves and Under 18s will be announced shortly. Looking forward, the club is excited about it’s future both on and off the field.
