Magpies name their new coach

The Western Magpies have names Brydan Morgan as QAFL senior coach for 2017.

Brydan Morgan comes to the Western Magpies with over 15 years experience within various levels of senior football.

As a player and coach he have been directly involved in many successful teams across various levels of football.

Most of his playing experience stems from Victoria with the Romsey football Club and a stint at West Adelaide in 2006.  He was made captain of the Romsey Football Club (RDFL) as a 21 year old and played over 100 games with the club over a number of years.

Brydan enjoyed premiership success with the Romsey Football Cub in 2003 and made grand finals in 2005 and 2008 (Heathcote Football Club).

At 27, ongoing injuries and a career opportunity in the fire service prompted Brydan to retire from football and move to Queensland.

After 5 years away from the game, Brydan served as an assistant coach with the Western Magpies in 2015. His influence in 2015 at the Western Magpies led to an assistant coaching role at the Aspley Hornets NEAFL in 2016, where the club made a preliminary final.

Prior to working in the fire service, Brydan was a Physical Education teacher for 5 years.

Brydan returns to the Western Magpies with undeniable passion and knowledge of the modern game, and of the Western Magpies playing list.
