To all football managers out there,

It’s time to take your Football Manager 2018 skills into practice as an exciting opportunity has emerged for an ambitious, dedicated and energetic coach to help shape the future of Glebe Gorillas Football Club.

Due to an internal restructure within the club’s football department Glebe Gorillas FC are now seeking to employ a Head Coach and a Reserve Coach for its 2018 Championship team which competes in the ESFA. Glebe Gorillas First Grade finished the 2017 ESFA regular season in fifth place (missing out on the play-offs by one point) where our Reserves finished mid-table. As runners-up of the NSW Football State Cup in 2016 we are looking for a manager that can handle the success Glebe Gorillas FC has had in the last 3 years.
