Our Meet the Coaches series continues as we meet our awesome coaching staff! Next up is Oli Carr!

🟢 What team do you coach?
This year I’ll be taking the U16s Capital Premier League Boys team.

🟢 How long have you coached at TUFC?
This will be my third year at Tuggies.

🟢 What is the best thing about coaching at TUFC?
Without a doubt it’s seeing the teams play great football whilst having fun and seeing the players maturing as people. Being able to form rewarding relationships with teams and seeing them progress under their coach’s guidance is the most fulfilling thing I have done. Not only giving back to and strengthening the local community, but the Australian football community as a whole is a fantastic position to be in.

🟢 Who has had the biggest impact on you as a coach?
Probably my old cricket coach Grant Stanley. Even though we were worlds apart as people and he was about 40 years older than me, he found what we had in common and built a relationship of trust and understanding. He is the foundation for my current coaching style and how to build relationships with players. Rest In Peace Grant.

🟢 What team do you currently enjoy watching the most?
I love watching Brentford at the moment. They are a fast-paced all out team that play football in the way that is most exciting and interesting to me. In my opinion, teams will be looking towards them as one of the pioneers of modern football tactics and club management.

🟢 What's the most rewarding thing about coaching at TUFC?
The most rewarding thing is either working on something hard on the training field and seeing it come off in a game or seeing a player crack a smile after giving them a compliment that they genuinely deserved. Even if these things only happen a couple of times a season, I know I’m being a positive influence somehow.

Oli is a terrific coach who is heavily involved in our Capital Premier League Boys program at trainings and match days! Make sure you say hello to Oli the next time you see him and thank him for the great work he is doing for the club 👏

Our Meet the Team series continues as we turn our focus to our coaching staff across our programs! Next up is Ben Mynott!

🟢 What team do you coach?
The Capital Premier League Boy’s U18s team.

🟢 How long have you coached at TUFC?
This will be my second season coaching with the club in 2022.

🟢 What is the best thing about coaching at TUFC?
The people at TUFC. The players, parents, coaching staff and club volunteers all create a fantastic environment for players to thrive and develop, which is pleasing from a coaching standpoint.

🟢 Who has had the biggest impact on you as a coach?
Predominantly a number of my coaching colleagues that I’ve had the pleasure working with over the past 6 years. They have a library of knowledge and have contributed immensely to my development as a football coach.

🟢 What team do you currently enjoy watching the most?
I currently enjoy watching the assertive front-foot approach that both Chelsea and Liverpool are producing in the EPL. Both these teams are generating an exceptional footballing product that is fantastic to watch as fans of the sport, as well as being effective in producing results.

🟢 What's the most rewarding thing about coaching at TUFC?
Seeing players progress and develop rapidly is exceptionally pleasing and fulfilling. Putting in the time and effort as a coach at training and seeing tangible results is exceedingly rewarding.

Ben can be found coaching our 18s team and is heavily involved with our Capital Premier League Boys Program! Make sure you say hello to Ben the next time you see him around the club 👋

A big congratulations to Mark Richards who is the 2021 recipient of the Scarth-Johnson Memorial Award. The Scarth-Johnson Memorial Award is awarded to the most promising Men’s Youth (U20) player at TUFC.

The Scarth-Johnson Memorial Award is named after David Scarth-Johnson, a promising young player from the early years of Kambah United, who tragically drowned whilst rescuing a classmate. The award aims to honour David’s memory by celebrating promising young players at TUFC.

Mark started the 2021 season in our NPL 18s team after returning back to Australia from Croatia. Before living in Croatia, Mark played in our NPL 13s and 14s teams. Mark quickly became a pivotal player for the team, scoring 19 goals in 11 games. Mark also racked up an impressive return of 5 goals in 6 games for our NPL 23s team and finished the season in our First Grade team, scoring 2 goals in his 7 appearances, including a goal on his First Grade debut.

Mark joins an elite group of players to be presented with this award, a number of who still play for or are associated with the club. Congratulations Mark on a terrific 2021 season and we all look forward to seeing you play many more games at Tuggeranong United! 👏👏

A big congratulations to Mackenzie Crook who is the 2021 recipient of the TUFC NPLW Rising Star Award! The award is presented to the ‘Rising Star’ of our NPLW youth age groups.

Mackenzie travels from Cowra in New South Wales to be part of the TUFC NPLW program. In 2021, Mackenzie played at centre back for the NPLW 17s. Although Mackenzie suffered a significant injury during pre-season that required a long rehabilitation time, she returned to the team as soon as she was cleared to do so and immediately made a positive impact on the team. As a much loved part of the team, she has great character and a good sense of humour.

Mackenzie is a technically gifted, hard working and tactically astute player. She is always motivated and positive at training and game days and has a genuine love for the game. Mackenzie has been a part of a number of Country NSW representative teams and has the potential to progress to higher levels of competitive football.

Mackenzie has been an asset to the TUFC NPLW program and we look forward to seeing what the next season brings for Mackenzie! 👏👏

Our Meet the Coaches series continues as we meet our awesome coaching staff! Next up is Sebastian Kinghorne!

🟢 What team do you coach?
The Capital Premier League Men’s U23s team.

🟢 How long have you coached at TUFC?
This will be my 5th year with the club.

🟢 What is the best thing about coaching at TUFC?
Being able to work with some of the best people in Canberra Football almost daily is a real privilege.

🟢 Who has had the biggest impact on you as a coach?
TUFC 1st Grade Head Coach Mitch Stevens has had a huge influence over me and my coaching. I have been learning my craft under his watchful eye for the last 6-7 years, I wouldn’t be here without his help over the years. Also, my soon to be wife has been my number one fan during my time coaching which has meant the world to me.

🟢 What team do you currently enjoy watching the most?
Probably a popular choice, I am (still) really enjoying watching Jürgen Klopp’s Liverpool side. I am also a fan of watching Bielsa training sessions, some very interesting coaching methods on display there.

🟢 What's the most rewarding thing about coaching at TUFC?
Since the first day I arrived at the club, TUFC has always looked out for me. I have always felt respected and valued by those around me, there is a real family feel to the club. It’s a pleasure to see players, coaches and back room staff around me working everyday to better themselves and those around them to ultimately make TUFC the best football club in Canberra.

Seb is a terrific coach who can be found at all our senior Men’s Premier League sessions and match days! Make sure you say hello to Seb the next time you see him and thank him for the great work he is doing for the club 👏
