Thirds take new direction with Didge

We are delighted to announce David Di Genova as our Thirds coach for Season 2019.

David will lead a restructured Thirds team that will have a primary focus on development of our younger players within the senior team structure. Having coached our U19 Colts team in 2018, David was instrumental in creating a positive and energetic environment for our younger players. David’s transition to the Thirds coaching position will enable his already strong work to continue and provide continuity to one of the club’s largest U19s cohorts transitioning up to senior football next year.

Having represented the club as a player, ‘Didge’ was a great fit to introduce our Colts players to the CYs culture, whilst maintaining a strong competitive on-field group. The club is excited that Didge is keen to extend his coaching tenure in this new direction as he is a natural fit for that conduit from 19s to senior footy.


The CYs will continue to grow and support all its playing members by looking to establish a historic fourth men’s side in 2019. This continued growth as a club is a testament to the volunteers and the passionate playing group the CYs are so lucky to have.

More announcements will be made regarding the clubs growth and development in the coming week.
