New NYC coach Anthony Seibold has commenced his role at Melbourne Storm, as he begins to assemble the club’s U20s team for 2013.
Seibold joined the club at the start of November, replacing Dean Pay who accepted an assistant coach position with Ricky Stuart at Parramatta.
Assisting Seibold this season is Marc Brentnall who takes on a new role of U20s Assistant Coach and Operations Manager. Brentall has held a number of coaching jobs, most recently as assistant coach with Queensland Cup team Brisbane Norths. He also has a Bachelor of Science in Human Movement having graduated from the University of Qld in 2005.
2012 members have until 5:00pm Thursday 15 November to renew their reserved seat! More details here
While welcoming Seibold and Brentall, the club would like to acknowledges the seven years of outstanding service by Chris Jones in the position of U20s High Performance Manager.
Jones originally joined the club in 2006 as High Performance Manager with the NRL squad, playing a pivotal role in the establishment of the Central Coast Storm, which was the Storm’s feeder club from 2007 to 2009.
The significant contribution Jones has made to the establishment of the Club’s Under 20s squad in 2008 in the inaugural NYC competition and the positive manner in which the NYC program has been operated over the last five seasons will certainly be a lasting impression.
Whilst the 2009 NYC Premiership is a major highlight during Jones’ time, the 2013 NRL squad will feature 15 players that have been promoted from the club’s U20s, indicating a true testimony to the hard work of Jones and many others associated with this elite development pathway.
Melbourne Storm thanks Chris for his wonderful contribution to the club both professionally and personally and wish him the very best for the future.
