Thompson returns to Alberton

thumbnail_thompson.jpg

THE PORT ADELAIDE FOOTBALL CLUB is pleased to welcome Scott Thompson back to Alberton on a two-year contract as a midfield development coach.

Thompson says the transition to full-time coaching should be a smooth one after acting as a mentor to the Adelaide Football Club’s young midfielders during his latter seasons playing with the Crows.

“As a senior player it’s natural to take on that sort of responsibility but it helped me realise I have a genuine passion to help young players get the best out of themselves,” he said.

“Port Adelaide has an exciting group of young midfielders and I’m also looking forward to working closely with the likes of Ken Hinkley, Michael Voss and Matt Lokan – who I know well from my school and junior football days.

“It seems like a lifetime ago that I was finding my way as a youngster at Alberton but it’s a great feeling to be back where my footy...

Hinkley key to strong trade period

AFL 2017 IRS Series - Australia v Ireland

THE RETENTION of coach Ken Hinkley was a major reason Port Adelaide had a successful NAB AFL Trade Period, says star forward Chad Wingard. 

After crashing out in the first week of finals this year, the Power were aggressive during the trade and free agency period, netting Lion Tom Rockliff, Demon Jack Watts and Cat Steven Motlop in a bumper haul. 

Wingard believes if the board didn't show faith in Hinkley to extend his stay at Alberton until the end of 2021, Port may have been unable to lure those big names to assist with its premiership ambitions. 

"No, I don't think they would have (joined the Power)," Wingard...

This story originally appeared on afl.com.au. The views represented are not that of the Port Adelaide Football Club.

PORT Adelaide skipper Travis Boak is confident the Power can quickly develop team chemistry at the start of next season despite having a major overhaul of its playing list.

The Power have been the busiest club in the off-season with a raft of changes, bringing in free agents Tom Rockliff and Steven Motlop, along with former No.1 draft pick Jack Watts from Melbourne.

They also secured Gold Coast defender Trent McKenzie and ex-Melbourne co-captain Jack Trengove as delisted free agents, while...

Lokan to coach Magpies

 

PORT ADELAIDE has appointed Matthew Lokan as senior coach of the Magpies on a three-year contract.

The 34-year-old says, after four years with Glenelg, he’s excited to return to Port Adelaide where he played 112 SANFL games.

“My career began at Alberton and I can’t wait to get back there,” he said.

“It’s an honour to join the list of great people who’ve coached the Magpies down the years.

“I’d like to thank Glenelg for the opportunity they gave me to coach. I learned so much and thoroughly enjoyed my time there but the chance to work full-time alongside an AFL program is one I couldn’t afford to pass up.”

Port Adelaide’s General Manager of Football, Chris Davies, says the  appointment enables former Magpies coach Chad Cornes to move into an AFL development role where he will work closely with the club’s young forwards.

“This is a natural career pathway for Chad to shift his focus...

JACK TRENGOVE is enthusiastic about the opportunity to experience a preseason with a fresh mindset and no restrictions.
The 26-year-old former Demon signed with Port Adelaide as a delisted free agent last Friday.

Trengove – who missed the majority of the 2014 and 2015 AFL seasons due to a break and consequent issues with his navicular bone – said he was excited about the possibilities of what the future held.

“It’s been a bit of a whirlwind the past 24 hours,” Trengove told Sportsday SA on Friday afternoon.

“I couldn’t be more excited and bullish about what’s ahead because I’m finally going to get a chance to attack a preseason like I want to, and have no...
