The Hallam Football Club is delighted to announce the appointment of Gary Frangalas for the 2015 season.
Gary comes to us with a great playing and coaching career that has expanded for over 15 years. After starting his junior playing days for the Clayton Football Club (Now currently a division 1 side in SFL) his playing carrer expanded from the u19’s for South Melbourne from 1980 – 82, then being appointed to join Sydney Swans (South Melbourne at VFL level) in 1983. At the end of 1985 Gary ventured off to Richmond after 51 games and opted against the move to Sydney. His VFL/AFL craeer expanded 68 games at the Tigers.
Due to injury, Gary was forced to retire and signed with Dandenong Redlegs in 91. He then decided to go into the coaching ring in 92′ where he captain coached Cobden FC in the Hampden league and went to Doveton F.C the year after in the same role. From 1994 – 1996 he went back to Clayton as assistant coach. He has had the pleasure of playing under coaches such as Kevin Bartett, John Northey, & Tony Jewell.
The last few years have seen Gary take sometime out to focus on his daughters basketball and also sons football coaching them at junior level.
We would like to welcome Gary and his family to the family at the Hallam Football Club.
I’m sure you all agree it is a worthy one and I personally can’t wait to see what 2015 brings.
Matthew Brew – President
