From a region perspective, Darren Flanigan has had the Dandenong Stingrays close to his heart previously and since rejoining in 2018. Flanigan has been leader in junior development for a very long period, both male and female.
There are reports he will not be re-applying for his newly advertised job next year along with a number of other regional managers across the state. And that is starting to hit the headlines across in football circles.
Interesting times lay ahead for the Stingrays, as well as development on the Mornington Peninsula with no replacement as yet for Cam Roberts or Dean Rice.
