NPL Boy's Coaches

TECHNICAL DIRECTOR

Archie Davis

Our JNPL Technical Director joined Altona Magic in 1981 and was part of the junior development machine that was Altona Magic. Archie made his senior debut in 1986 at the age of 16 and went on to play a further 6 seasons with the Red and Black, before continuing his playing career at Green Gully and Altona East Phoenix. Archie also represented the State Team as a junior and made an Australian U16s train on squad in 1986.

Archie currently holds his ‘B’ Licence and has coached across junior and senior levels at Altona Magic, Altona East, Whittlesea and Westvale amongst others. Archie has also been the Victorian State team head coach 2002-05.

Upon being appointed Archie stated “We have a special group of talented kids in our junior ranks. With the right pathway, coaching and opportunity they could be anything”

Now in his second year as TD, his aim is to develop and provide a pathway for our juniors as he looks to produce players of the highest calibre. We look forward to Archie driving the Junior Development Program as Technical Director and producing many Magicians for our senior team in the years to follow.

Mark Di Francesco

Mark has been coaching at Magic over the last 4 years and has helped to oversee the development of this team to become a strong competitor in the top tier of the NPL.

Mark grew up playing junior football at our neighbour’s, Altona City before moving Sunshine George Cross who at that time were playing in the super league. Mark was part of the team that progressed into the national youth league which went on to win National championship. His senior playing career saw him represent a number of clubs including Maryibyrnong Polonia and Western Suburbs.

Moving into coaching and passing on his wealth of playing experience was natural for Mark and with a reputation as a great communicator we are confident he will get the most out of this team.
