The Montmorency Football Netball Club has announced that senior men’s coach Jonathan Manzoney will depart the club after one season in the role.
Manzoney was appointed as the Magpies’ senior men’s coach in October last year after spending three years at the club as an assistant coach to Garry Ramsay.
Prior to his arrival at Montmorency Park, he had a two-year stint at Hurstbridge as senior men’s coach and also spent some time at the Northern Knights in development coaching roles.
Montmorency finished in second position on the 2023 Melbourne Greyhounds Division 1 ladder, their best finish after the home and away season since 2013, however were knocked out of the finals series in straght sets.
A club statement said:
The Montmorency Football Netball Club have parted ways with Senior Coach Jono Manzoney after one year at the helm.
The club enjoyed a successful season under his leadership, making the finals in both senior grades.
Jono came to the club in 2019 as an assistant to Garry Ramsay and worked closely with Garry throughout his tenure. Jono was also involved in coaching in our junior girls program.
He brought to the club a professional approach and displayed an extraordinary work-ethic in his efforts to succeed for the club. He has been a very popular person at both the junior & senior clubs.
With another early exit from the senior NFNL finals series, the club has decided a change of approach is necessary.
We are thankful for the positives Jono contributed to our club and we wish him well for the future.
