The good news keeps rolling at Avalon Airport Oval with the 2023 captain Nick Coughlan signing on for 2024.
It was a big season for the popular defender, who had an injury-interrupted start to the season before playing 18 games as the lynchpin of a rock-solid Tigers defensive unit.
Coughlan took on the captaincy role in 2023 and thrived, culminating in his selection in the VFL Team of the Year.
Supporters will be as delighted as his teammates that Nick is on board for another tilt at the title. The man himself certainly is:
“I am very excited to be going around in 2024. To climb the mountain last season and fall just short will hurt for a long time but we have a group of guys that I know can go again.”
“The nature of the VFL is we will lose top quality people and players every year, but the culture that has been built at Werribee over the years will allow new people to write their own stories and carry the club going forward.”
“It's awesome to see so many guys sign on again and a lot of that has to do with the enjoyment playing at Werribee provides.”
“For me personally, being at Werribee has been the most enjoyment I've had playing footy ever and I look forward to doing it all over again next season."
Football Manager Mark Micallef summed up the news of Nick’s signing:
“We are extremely delighted to have Nick on board for the 2024 season. He is an outstanding leader and I don’t have to tell people about his on-field ability. He is the Team of the Year key defender and an important pillar of our club.”
