Tenace named top coach

KANE Tenace has been recognised for guiding Geelong Amateur to the minor premiership in his first season in charge at Queens Park by being named as coach of the BFL Coaches Team of the Year.

The former Geelong speedster oversaw 13 wins and a draw during the home-and-away season, with Amateur set to face Torquay in Saturday’s preliminary final.

The Ammos and Tigers are the best represented of the clubs, with four selections. Grand finalist Barwon Heads, Anglesea Modewwarre and Drysdale each have three.

Portarlington and Queenscliff are the only clubs without a representative.

Just seven members of last year’s team earned selection in 2019; Barwon Heads trio Mitch Herbison, Mitch Phelps and Mat Dyer, Anglesea duo Jordan Erskine and Ryan Williams, Torquay forward Paul McMahon and Modewarre big man John Meesen.

Erskine, who finished the home-and-away season with 98 goals, was honoured with the captaincy.
