North Shore Bombers Appoint Rogers as Senior Men’s Coach
North Shore Australian Football Club is very pleased to announce that Andrew “Buck” Rogers has been appointed as Men’s Senior Coach for the 2022 season.
Buck comes to North Shore with tremendous credentials in our game. Originally from South Australia, he played 242 games for Woodville-West Torrens in the SANFL, captaining the Eagles for six years and also captaining South Australia. Buck was also drafted into the AFL, playing eight games for Essendon and 75 for Geelong, including the 1992 Grand Final.
Since his playing days, Buck coached at Woodville-West Torrens, at West Adelaide under Andy Collins and was the runner for the Port Adelaide AFL side under Ken Hinkley. After moving to Sydney, he coached at Manly for four years, so knows the Sydney footy landscape very well.
After finishing his first session at Gore Hill in North Shore colours Buck said “I’m really excited and honoured to be appointed the Senior Men’s Coach for a club that I have long admired for their professionalism and culture. I’m looking forward to becoming part of the club, developing the players further and ultimately, contributing to sustained success over many years.”
Commenting on Buck’s appointment North Shore President John Goode said “This process has been about appointing someone with the knowledge, passion and commitment to continue the development of players, coaches and support staff in our senior men’s group, as well as the desire to contribute across the whole club. Buck’s football bio speaks for itself, but having observed his personal contribution in our competition in recent years, we’re confident he is a great fit for us”.
Please welcome Buck to North Shore, and we’ll look forward to seeing his impact as the 2022 season unfolds.
