Logan Metro Football Club is proud to announce our capital coaches for 2018. Upon reviewing and interviewing several candidates, the committee has decided to go for a skilled, youthful, ambitious and hungry coaching team.
Luis Melgar | Head Coach – An assistant coach last season and an inaugural player of the club. No one understands better the vision, unique make up and ambition of LMFC. Luis is currently completing his FFA/AFC C license.
“It’s a a real privilege to be Head Coach of LMFC for the upcoming season. I’m looking forward to the challenge of matching the ambition of the club onto the football pitch.
Credit to our previous coaches for the foundations of the team we have in place. I know myself and Lee share the same belief that we only require some small tinkering with personal rather than wholesale changes, however we have outlined key positions we need to strengthen and add some more depth too.
It will be a challenging season, but one we are looking forward to standing up too and leaving our mark on! “-Luis Melgar
Lee Wearne | Strength & Conditioning/Reserves Coach- a former player in the Brisbane Roar youth set up who has played in the National Premier Legaue and in the Brisbane Premier League.
