A FORMER Castlederg man has taken up a prominent coaching role Down Under.
Mark Sproule, an ex-Tyrone Milk Cup player, has been appointed head coach of Rockingham City FC under-20s.
The former Dergview and Dungannon United Youth player signed for Rockingham as a player in 2018, however, since then the Tyrone man has been plagued by injury.
Sproule still has ambitions to play once he recovers from his latest injury setback although that will now have to fit in around his new part-time post as the club’s under-20s supremo.
Rockingham City is a semi-professional club which plays in the NPL – the second tier of football in Australia – and Sproule will be working with players from 16 to 20-year-old who harbour ambitions of securing a career in the game.
