We’re excited to announce that Gerhard Janssen has joined Balga SC as the First Team Head Coach for the 2021 season and beyond. Gerhard takes over from Danny Cain who has guided Balga SC last term.

“The board and I are delighted to have Gerhard join Balga SC. Gerhard’s values and experience developing junior players perfectly aligns with Balga SC and our Fee Free Football program. We wish Gerhard and his team the best of luck and success.” said Balga SC President Ken Shorto.

Janssen is excited to be joining Balga and is eager to get the preparations started for the upcoming season “I’m really excited to be joining Balga SC. I love the Club’s forwarding thinking, the attention being given to Juniors and I just can’t wait for the new season. We’ve already started mapping out the preparations” said Gerhard Janssen.

Shorto acknowledged Danny Cain’s hard work in his first year of senior coaching “I’d like to thank Danny for all his hard work over the last season. It was a challenging year for football in general however Danny’s professionalism shone through and he did an excellent job. He has more than earned a good break and an opportunity to spend more time with his family. I am delighted that Danny remains a big part of the Balga SC family”.
