Performance Coach Tom


A bit about myself …

I have played football for about 8 years now. In total I have played 145 games of football. The first guernsey I pulled on was #8 for RSMU Hawks (Riverton Saddleworth Marrabel United). My home club now (aside from the Doggies of course) is Salisbury Football Club. Some special achievements of mine would have to be getting BOG in the Adelaide Footy League U18s Grand Final playing for Salisbury, being named on the wing in the Adelaide Footy League Team of the Year and kicking two goals on Giants Stadium playing for SA. Other sports I have played include athletics, basketball, cricket, gaelic, netball, soccer and swimming. I have also represented SA in athletics competing in javelin and shot put. My favourite position to play in footy is on the wing because it’s such a versatile position you can really make your own!

Salisbury Football Club

Match day motivation song?

What is your field of work and/or study?

I manage a recreation centre and I am studying business sport and recreation management.

Funniest team mate?

Briggy thinks it’s her, but it’s really Karissa ‘Rissole’ Searle.

What player in your team do you reckon is going to set the competition alight this year?

Lauren ‘Briggy’ Breguet, she’s got some great footy smarts, especially considering she’s U18, looking forward to seeing her tear it up and sell some candy!

Toughest player in the team?

Alicia ‘Buttz’ Butler, I’m glad she is on my team that’s for sure!

What is your weapon?

I’ve got a need for speed (if you’re reading this Mum purely on field – I am a responsible driver on the roads).
