Myrtleford’s most successful coaching duo has committed to another season at the helm.
Jayden Vescio and Matt Park will lead the Savoys into a fourth straight campaign as co-coaches.
The pair boast an incredible record, claiming three consecutive cups as well as the last two league titles.
After 75 games in charge, Vescio and Park have claimed 61 wins and three draws, with just 11 losses, giving them a winning percentage of 81 per cent.
Vescio admitted the decision to sign on wasn’t as straightforward as most would expect, but he knew it would be hard to walk away given the huge success of the past three seasons.
“It’s a pretty big commitment living in Wang with a little one now and you never want things to go stale with a coach staying on for too many years,” Vescio said.
“Matt and I are really good mates and we bounce off each other quite well.
“I tend to do a lot of the talking and with his background and what he’s been able to bring technically has been A grade.
“We complement each other really well which makes it an easy job.
“Co-coaching is looked at as a hard thing to do, but when you’ve got a good understanding of each other, it’s a pleasure.”
Vescio believes there’s no pressure on he and Park given what they’ve achieved in a short space of time.
“Everyone wants to beat us and it keeps Matt and I thinking as coaches because you can’t go into any game thinking we’ll be right,” he said.
“The group doesn’t look like it’s slowing down anytime soon.
“I started playing seniors in 2005 and I’ve probably seen six coaches come and go over the journey.
“There’s a few things I sort of had to change when I started coaching and I’ve been able to do that over the last couple of years.
“With Parksy arriving at the club with new ideas, he’s always a step ahead of the game tactically and has been great.”
Vescio stressed there’s no shortage of motivation within the playing group which remains hungrier than ever for more silverware.
“If ‘Parksy’ and I aren’t doing the right things, our players are pretty quick to tell us,” he said.
“When you’ve go that sort of relationship with your players, it goes a long way.
“Our motivation this year was to win the double again, which we were able to do.
“It will be the same motivation to do everything again and maybe get a little bit further in the FFA Cup.
“There’s really exciting times ahead with a couple of young guys to come back from injury, so we’re really looking forward to what next year brings.”
Myrtleford will celebrate the season at its presentation night on October 20.
