Fitzroy Football Club: Great football, Great community, Great culture.

Two New Coaches Join The Roys for 2020


The Fitzroy Football Club is thrilled to announce the appointments of two new coaches.


John Mustafa has been appointed as coach of the The Fitzroy-ACU Senior Women after Gray Barton stepped down from the role at the end of the 2019 Season. Fitzroy thanks Gray for his service and dedication to the Club and wishes him all the best.

John joins Fitzroy from the VU Western Spurs where in 2019 he coached the Division 2 team to a premiership. An outstanding achievement.

Before his time at the Spurs, John was also an assistant coach with the Diamond Creek Football Club. The Club is excited to have John on board for 2020 to bring his talent and experience to the Fitzroy-ACU Senior Women's team.


Danny Hecker has also recently been appointed as coach of the Under 19s.

Danny comes to the club with 7 years coaching experience at youth club and representative level including working with the Yarra Magpies Academy (YJFL and Collingwood partnership) and Gold Coast Suns (Youth) Summer Skills program.


Danny was also the 2018 Season Head Coach with U16 Tweed Coolangatta Division 1 AFLQ Gold Coast.

The Club also extends its thanks to Monty Stuart for coaching the Under 19s in 2019.

The news of these two exciting appointments comes as the Club finished off the year with the final training session on Wednesday night.

Players, coaches and volunteers concluded a challenging final training run in the heat with a celebratory barbecue and will now work on individual programs over the break before coming back to the club in the new year to hit the round running.


Fitzroy FC welcomes John and Danny to the Club for what will be an exciting season in 2020.
