Shepparton Golf coach and star skipper Brad Orr has been reappointed for another season.
The announcement comes just three rounds out from a finals series where the ladder leader’s quest for back-to-back Allan Matheson Shield premierships will be put to the test.
Club secretary and committee member Bruce Giovanetti was rapt with Orr’s decision to stay at the club.
‘‘We are extremely pleased to have Brad for another year at the club. As a 26-year-old, he displays the coaching talent and ability to bring people together of someone much older,’’ he said.
‘‘The committee voted on his reappointment and the result was unanimous, Brad is an asset to the club not only in a playing sense, but off the field as well.’’
Orr said the decision to continue in his role was not a hard one.
‘‘I’m pretty stable here (Shepparton) at the moment, so I’m pretty happy with the work-life-bowls balance I have,’’ he said.
‘‘I’m thankful to the club for the opportunity to continue that next season, the hard work of the members and board make my life easy.’’
The announcement allows Golf to attack the finals series free from distraction.
‘‘You always like to get it out of the way early,’’ Orr said.
‘‘The sooner the better, really, to get rid of any speculation around it.’’
The recently crowned Goulburn Valley Champion of Champions has had a stellar season, leading Golf to a 13-2 record heading into the final three rounds.
Orr sits fifth on the skippers’ ladder for the Allan Matheson Shield, highlighting how much of an asset he is for the club.
