Former Peel region Docker joins his old club

Former Peel Thunder player Daniel Haines will join the Dockers AFLW coaching staff in 2022.

Haines, who has also spent time coaching South Mandurah and assistant coaching at Centrals in the Peel Football Netball League will take up the role as midfield coach.

He is the second former Docker to join the club with Jay Van Berlo also signing to be the new forwards coach.

Haines said he was thrilled with the opportunity.

“I’m very passionate about football and it’s been a big part of my life for a long time. With women’s football, it’s that passion that the girls show and their commitment to improve that has enticed me to go in this direction,” Haines said.

“I was fortunate to do a little bit of coaching at Peel Thunder with the reserves last year with the female team, who won the Grand Final and that was a great first experience in the women’s game."
