The former Pigeons premiership player took over as coach this season and steered them to a 33-point win against Wangaratta.

Kaitlyn coached the Yarrawonga A-grade netball team to the flag in 2014 and is a multiple premiership player for the club.

“It is a great reward for the boys,” Cummins said.

He was recently awarded Coach-of-the-Year honours in the youth category.

They dropped two matches late in the season before going one better than runner-up finishes in 1998 and 2008 under the coaching of Neil Davis and Russell Ednie respectively.
