NORTH Shore has turned to former Inverleigh coach Mark McDowell to fill the role left vacant by Sam Darley’s departure from Windsor Park.

McDowell, who coached the Hawks for six seasons, including to consecutive grand final appearances in 2017 and 2018, had been linked to an assistant coaching role at the Seagulls after parting ways with Inverleigh.

However, after Darley’s decision to return to Tasmania for family reasons after just one year in charge, North Shore again approached McDowell.

The Seagulls become the fourth club McDowell has coached at senior level, having also been in charge of Corio and Geelong Amateur.
