Wallsend Wolves’ coaching director and junior club president, Mark Andrews says the club is looking forward to the weekend.  “We have been very lucky to have current Australian Women’s Open assistant coach Karley Banks move to the area and take up the role of head coach and instantly get people excited about being involved in something like this.”“We are hoping now to retain local players and help them develop and progress through the representative ranks and be able to still enjoy the chance to play with their friends and stay together. Our club is 100 percent behind the program, its coaching staff and the players see a bright future for not only the Open’s program, but all the players affiliated with the club,” Andrews said. Related LinksWallsend Wolves Camplast_img
