Rushworth coach gone

By Kyabram Free Press

RUSHWORTH Football Club have cut ties with senior coach Nemani Valucava.

Via their Facebook page, the club said Valucava’s ambitions were not aligned with the direction of the club and therefore it was in the best interest of the club to part ways.

Rushworth said they have appointed Brett Pateman as senior coach for the new season.

Pateman has previously coached Rushworth at a senior level in 1998 and ’99, taking the team to the grand final, and also coached Rushworth U18s in 2010.
