Chris Hall to depart SPOC FC
Resignation of Chris Hall
I regret to advise the SPOC community that Chris Hall has tendered his resignation as Club Coach, effective from the end of this December.
Chris has advised the Club that his family intends to relocate to Perth early in the New Year, for work commitments.
The Club would like to record its appreciation for Chis’s outstanding contribution to the Club. Chris’s skills, dedication, determination and wholehearted commitment have helped build a stronger Club. In his short tenure, Chris unified the coaching group, instilled a club-first approach, implemented an effective game plan and lifted the playing standards across all teams. Of course, Chris will be remembered most fondly for coaching the team which had a remarkable undefeated A grade season and won a Division 2 Premiership.
We have loved having Chris in our Club and that he forged so many strong friendships in his short time with us is testimony to the character of the man and the high standing in which he is held in the Club.
Chris is forever bonded to our Club, it’s players and premiership success. We will miss him and we wish him every future success.
Chris has this personal messsage for the SPOC community;
“I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at SPOC as the Club Coach for the past 2 seasons. Unfortunately, due to personal reasons it is important for my family and I to return to Perth.
I would like to thank everyone involved at SPOC, in particular the Committee, Harvs and Tun for their incredible support over the past 2 years, and of course the players who have become such a wonderful part of my life and true friends.
I will cherish the moments we have shared together for the rest of my life. After being involved in football at senior level for the last 19 years of my life, I can comfortably say that the triumph we conquered together this year will go down as my greatest football memory.
I am so proud of what the Club has been able to achieve, and I truly believe this could be the beginning of something special for you all.
The Club has also greatly appreciated the contribution of Amber Hall. Amber’s cheerful involvement in the Club, her willingness to help and fundraising abilities have been extremely valuable.. Also, well done and thanks to Sebastian Hall for his tireless work as water-boy and scoreboard attendant.
We wish Chris Amber and their three children, Sebastian, Olivia and Harry all the very best on their new journey.
Chris and Michael Harvey will take the initial three week preseason training block, scheduled to commence on 27th November at the Caterer Oval.
The Club is committed to high on-field achievement and is focused on supporting its highly credentialed playing group to be successful in Division 1 in next season and beyond. To that end, a search has already commenced for the new Club Coach and we will endeavour to make a suitable appointment quickly.
