We are thrilled to announce the following coaching appointments for 2022:
Guy Martyn is a senior premiership coach at St Kevin’s Old Boys and has a fantastic track record in premier grade amateur football. He has a great passion and understanding of the game which he combines with his people and communication skills to deliver outstanding results, on and off the field.
Guy teaches VCE psychology and physical education at St Bede’s. To quote Guy, “I am very excited to have the opportunity to coach at Uni Blues which has a long and proud history in amateur football. With a strong playing list and some incredibly talented young footballers coming through, the future is very bright. I look forward to being part of that future and to get to know the playing group and supporters. It will be great to get back to football in 2022”.
Welcome to the Uni Blues Guy (or Marto for the familiar and friendly).
