Laurimar Sporting Club has announced the departure of senior men’s football coach Justin Sherman after three seasons at the helm.
Sherman joined the Power in 2017 following their inaugural season in the NFNL’s senior men’s football competition.
He guided the Power to a fourth-place finish in Heidelberg Golf Club Division 3 in his first season as coach, before making a preliminary final appearance last year.
In statement released on Wednesday, Laurimar president Alasdair Walker said Sherman would depart the club to pursue other coaching aspirations.
“By mutual agreement, Justin Sherman will depart as the club’s senior men’s coach to pursue his long-held aspirations of coaching at the highest levels,” Walker said.
“Albeit no football was played this year, Justin has had three successful seasons in charge, taking us to our first finals appearance in only our second year as a senior club and again in our third.
“As the senior arm of the club is still in its infancy, Justin was instrumental in developing many processes that place us in good stead moving forward.
“To that end we’re extremely thankful to Justin and his family for the positive impact he made on the club and I’m sure to many people individually. We wish him the very best for what lies ahead.”
Laurimar won 24 of 35 matches with Sherman at the helm.
The club will now commence the process of selecting a new coach for its senior men’s football team, with the position to be advertised shortly.
