Defending Premiers, Orana Spurs have started the defence of their Dubbo Premier League title with training  run at Hans Clavan Field.

Following a stunning win over the Bulls in last year’s decider, Spurs have a new coach and some fresh talent who are aiming to strengthen the club after a stellar 2015.

Albi Mastellotto coached Spurs to the title last year but has stepped aside in favour of a new coaching panel. 

Highly respected Steve Tongue will head up a group, which includes Mark Polley and Dylan Triplett.

“Steve brings a wealth of experience and football knowledge to the role. He is very popular with the boys as was seen at our first session,” Spurs patriarch Robert Hughes said.

“We are delighted with the platform Albi has provided. He was tireless last year and the club was rapt when he was given an Australia Day Award for his magnificent contribution to the sport in Dubbo.”

Spurs train each Sunday night from 6 on Hans Clavan Field on Bligh St, behind Dubbo City Centre. Registrations for all ages, Under 5s to seniors, can be done at each Sunday training session.
