I would like to announce that Eltham Rugby has a new Senior Coach. Kenneth Wamsley has joined us from Box Hill and brings a very strong background in rugby, both as a player and more recently as a coach.

Kenney works as a personal trainer, is a strength and conditioning coach and is completing his Level 2 Coaching Certification. We look forward to Kenney beginning his journey with us and will organise a meet and greet with everyone soon. Kenney is keen to begin and has plans for a block of pre-season training before Christmas. Eltham EUFC is still recruiting coaches and managers for all teams for 2023, so please join Kenney’s step up and be a part of the coaching and management team.
