Senior Assistant coach
Born in northern beaches of Sydney, Craig began playing as a 7 year old for Beacon Hill, before moving to Portsmouth in England with his mum, older brother and twin sisters.
Playing local football Craig undertook his first coaching course (FA Preliminary License) in 1986 and started working for Portsmouth FC in their Community Department.
Taking a break from football, Craig joined the British Army in 1987 and served in Germany for 3 years. On return to England Craig attended the University of England studying Leisure Management and in 1996 started part time coaching work at Ipswich Town. In 2002 he returned to Australia where he briefly played for Hoppers Crossing before persistent injuries brought an end to his playing days. After taking on a number of coaching appointment, Craig elected to step up his expertise completing both his C & B Licenses in Melbourne, before moving on to join Avondale FC as their Technical Director for their 1st year in NPL1.
With a love of the sport and a passionate advocate for learning Craig is due to shortly complete his A License, and is looking forward to continuing to develop and evolve the Magic coaching set-up over the forward years.
Craig currently lives in Melbourne with his wife and daughters and Altona Magic are delighted to have Craig as part of our senior set-up in 2022.
