ANDREW Robertson has once again been appointed coach of the Tallangatta league for its interleague showdown against the Hume league at the Albury Sportsground on May 25.
The former Culcairn and Wahgunyah mentor successfully reclaimed the interleague crown last season after the Hume league had reigned supreme for two years.
Robertson is leaving no stone unturned in his quest for back-to-back titles and has appointed Howlong premiership coach Marc Almond, Nic Conway and Lucas Mellier as his assistants.
Almond has an intimate knowledge of the opposition squad after coaching the Hume league last year before signing as coach of Dederang-Mount Beauty.
“I really enjoyed last year and can’t wait to work alongside the best players in the league again,” Robertson said.
“I see it as an exciting challenge to reaffirm the status of the Tallangatta league as the best league in the district outside the Ovens and Murray.
“Having Marc come on board is fantastic and he will no doubt provide some invaluable insight into the opposition.
“I see the Hume league are serious about trying to reclaim the crown and have appointed Osborne premiership mentor Daniel McAlister as its coach.
“The Tallangatta league has attracted some big name recruits over the summer and I will endeavour to contact them in the coming weeks to gauge their level of interest in our title defence.”
Robertson has a wealth of coaching experience and retired from football last season after almost 400 senior games spanning more than two decades.
