Simon Shepherd

Head Coach

Simon Shepherd was appointed Head Coach at the beginning of the 2023 pre-season. Having been a passionate supporter of women's local football and seeing an opportunity to build a strong women's football program at MCC, Shep stepped into this role with a wealth of knowledge and ideas. With him comes a fun and welcoming training environment, as he aims to develop and build upon skills and game plans with each player and wider team. And if you're lucky - you might just win Shep's goal kicking competition and take home a prize.

Oliver Platt

Assistant Coach

Oli stepped up into the Assistant Coach position at the beginning of the 2023 season. Having completed his Level 1 AFL coaching course, Oli looks to have a bright future in coaching women's football. His patience and encouragement is what players love most - as he takes the time to teach and correct throughout the duration of training. On game days, Oli typically pulls on the bright pink runner top to assist in on-field performance and support.
