SEQAFL 60 Secs: Mitch Ferguson

Mayne coach, Mitch Fergsuon is in the 60 second hot seat this week.

Mitch Ferguson is one of the more experienced coaches in this year’s Allied Pickfords Cup competition.

Ferguson took the reins in 2007 and says that his highlight in that time was a 2008 win over Surfers, where 42-year-old Ken Rainsford kicked five goals.

Before coaching at the Tigers, Ferguson played Centre half-forward for six years at the club.

An organised person, Ferguson describes his strengths as being relaxed yet structured in his coaching style.

On game days, Ferguson has a roast beef sandwich, cream bun and iced coffee and goes for a walk with the pram.

Coaching legend Denis Pagan is Ferguson’s favourite, while courageous Lions captain, Jonathan Brown, tops his list of AFL players.

The 20 minutes in the dressing rooms after a win are his favourite elements of footy.

If he wasn’t working in sales, Ferguson’s dream job would be commentating sports.

A bit of a sweet tooth, Ferguson says his favourite things to eat are  Killer Pythons, but if he was cooking in a competition, he would be dishing up a lime and coconut chicken curry.

His dream holiday destination is Havana, and a trip to Ireland is also on his agenda for something to do before he dies.

Groundhog Day is his favourite movie, while the UK version of the Office is his top TV pick.

Ferguson has a passion for classic Holden cars, and outside of footy, he doesn’t mind a bit of cricket.
