Ken Swan - Director of Coaching

Ken  Swan  Arrival

Ken Swan joined the Pine Hills Football Club family as Director of Coaching in June 2019.

Ken brings to our club, qualities and experience that are of the highest level. As a player he was voted the best and fairest player in Queensland senior football two years in a row in the early 80's. He represented Queensland at the senior level over a 12 year period, and also played in the early years of the national league. Ken was also a member of several teams that won premierships and grand finals at the highest level of Queensland football.

Ken has also coached at the senior level. He coached Sunshine Coast in the state league, and North Star, Brisbane Strikers and Mt Gravatt in the Brisbane premier league. He has also coached multiple junior representative teams.

Not only does Ken have outstanding football experience but he also has over 30 years educational experience as a Teacher, Principal, Education Adviser, Author and Lecturer at QLD University of Technology. Ken’s unique Football and Educator experience made him a perfect fit for this role.

Ken jas joined Leo Sirianni (Senior Men’s Coach) and Rico Wilson (Senior Women’s Coach) working together with a newly established Senior Coaching Group to help Pine Hills FC design and develop the highest quality of coaching across all our Junior and Senior Football Teams.

Glen Faulkner, former Club President commented “Having someone of Ken’s calibre and experience is fantastic news for our club. We are committed to the development of our Junior and Senior players through a broader coaching structure across all levels”.

Ken commented “I’m excited to join Pine Hills FC and help the club reach their ambitions in establishing a new level of coaching standard and quality across all teams. The club has a great positive culture and a great team of coaches I’m looking forward to help develop”.

Ken will be around the club next week meeting our coaches and junior teams so please welcome him to our club.
