Morningside mentor steps down

Aaron Rogers has resigned as Morningside coach.

Aaron Rogers has stepped down as Morningside coach, ending a two-year tenure.

Rogers took the reins after his playing retirement in 2011, and led the club from wooden spooners to finalists in his second year at the helm.

The Panthers’ success this year filtered down to all grades, with all four senior teams making the finals and the club’s TIS Cup side awaiting an opponent in the 2013 grand final.

Rogers decided to step down from the role at the end of the season because of increasing commitments outside football.

Morningside club development manager, James Johns, said Rogers would be sorely missed  from the head coaching post.

“All of us at Morningside would like to thank Aaron for his total commitment and great work over the past two years,” Johns said.

“He has left our senior group in a good place and built the foundation for future success by setting a new standard of professionalism and commitment.

Rogers will not be entirely lost to the Panthers fold, with the 2010 premiership player staying on to assist in the handover to a new mentor.
