Kyneton has locked in its coaching staff for the 2022 season in the Bendigo Football League.

The Tigers have welcomed four-time best and fairest winner Rhys Magin as the new coach of the under-18 side.

Magin has been a stand out member of the Tigers senior side since joining in 2015.

In 2019, he was named on the wing in the league’s team of the decade alongside fellow Tiger Ben Weightman.

Tigers president Hayden Evans said the club was ecstatic to welcome Magin into the coaching ranks.

‘We couldn’t be happier to be appointing Rhys as Under-18s coach. He has been a brilliant player and clubman since he first arrived at the Showgrounds,” Evans said.

“Our young men will now be coached by the player they have all looked up to for years and that’s exciting for everyone at Kyneton.”

Magin will take over an under-18s outfit that showed promise before the end of the season was cancelled.

The Tigers finished in fifth position with five wins and six losses.

Kyneton will also welcome back Jesse Grae and former AFL player Paul Chapman to coach the senior netball and football sides respectively.

The Tiger senior men’s side has been boosted with the signing of Dean and Adam Bartrop from Tullamarine.
