Lalor Football Netball Club today announced the signing of Lance Whitnall as the club’s senior coach for season 2024.
Following an AFL career at Carlton that spanned 11 years and included 206 games, an All-Australian and club best and fairest, Whitnall spent two seasons with the Bloods between 2008 and 2009, kicking 124 goals in just 27 matches.
He then had multiple coaching stints at Craigieburn and Glenroy, and won an EDFL Division 1 premiership with Craigieburn in 2019.
Whitnall also spent the 2017 season playing with Laurimar, where he made 13 appearances and kicked 19 goals.
He will take over the position from Angelo Lamanna at the conclusion of the season.
Lalor host Heidelberg West in the final match of the 2023 campaign this weekend and will look to avoid a second straight winless season in Division 3.
