Cuzzupi Rounds Out EDFL Senior Coaching Appointments

Taylors Lakes Confirms Coach


CHARLES Cuzzupi is the new senior coach at Taylors Lakes.

The Lions were forced to search for a new coach after the shock resignation of Sam Tankard in December.

Cuzzupi is no stranger to the EDFL and is a famous figure at Avondale Heights, where he played more than 300 games and most recently served as football manager.

Rohan Eastway was also announced as Cuzzupi’s assistant.

Read the full club announcement below.

The announcement now means all 28 senior men’s coaching appointments have been confirmed for Season 2019.

There are 11 clubs that will go into 2019 with new coaches.
