Club Statement: Senior Men’s Coaching APPOINTMENT

Green Gully SC are proud to announce the appointment of Ramon Falzon as their new senior head coach.

Falzon joins Gully after a distinguished career in NPL Western Australia, where he won four league premierships and championships (2016, 2018, 2019, 2021), three Top Four trophies and one Night Series title, along with the 2021 NPL WA Premiership.

The Maltese-born coach was also awarded the NPL WA Coach of the Year in both 2018 and 2019.

Falzon also previously held roles as the head coach of Malta’s Under 17 junior men’s national team, along with being part of Perth Glory’s youth team coaching staff.

The new Green Gully Senior Men’s Coach said he believed in the assembled squad and looked forward to working with the players to start winning games more consistently.

“It’s a good bunch of players,” he said.

“Most of the games I’ve seen, we’ve taken the lead but maybe missed that opportunity to get 2-0 up and then dropped points. For me, there’s a solid foundation to build on, and from our side, that’s the objective: take what we have and work with the players to build and push up the standings.”

No stranger to winning games and trophies, Falzon said his success in Australian football had been built on being adaptable to the unique challenges of each opponent.

“I think people come to games hoping to see their team win, so my philosophy is to ensure our team has the maximum opportunities to win,” he said.

“In terms of a style, that might vary game to game, but the objective is to try and collect the three points on game day. That’s our ultimate objective.”

Stay tuned for Green Gully Media’s interview with Falzon to hear more from our new Coach.

Falzon will be joined by two new assistant coaches, with Adrian Mazzarella and Steven Pavlidis also arriving at Green Gully.

Mazzarella arrives at Green Gully with a vast array of coaching experience, including as an academy and junior coach at the likes of Chelsea and Crystal Palace, as well as a coach of Victorian Junior Teams and within Football Australia’s Future Matildas Program.

His first game in charge is this Saturday against Manningham United at Pettys Reserve.

Green Gully would also like to place on record its thanks to Micheal O’Rourke for his service as Interim Head Coach, as well his Interim Assistant, Andrej Maksimov.

Both will resume their duties as Video Analyst and Under-23 Head Coach respectively.
