Pickering excited by arrivals, Swans' youth

Thursday, March 28, 2019 - 2:05 PM - by Chris Pike

SWAN Districts coach Adam Pickering is confident that with the additions of the likes of George Hampson and Josh Simpson, and continued emergence of an exciting group of young players that the black-and-whites can rise up the ladder in 2019.

It wasn’t quite the year that Pickering hoped for Swan Districts in his first season as coach with an eighth-place finish, winning just the six games and only one after Round 9, but he is optimistic of a turnaround now in 2019.

There is some more experience lost at Swans following the departures of Todd Banfield, Kirk Ugle, Jarrad Blight and Matthew Rogers, but Pickering is confident in both the senior players retained and the handful of arrivals that they will help signal a significant improvement this season.
