MARCUS Cummins joined his wife Kaitlyn as a Yarrawonga premiership coach when he led the Pigeons' under-18 team to its first Ovens and Murray flag on Sunday.
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.
