The CT Crows are again under the supervision of Shane Masson. The CT Crows won both the U18 and U15 competitions in 2018 with strong matches in each round. With what is looking like strong teams again in 2019, the CT Crows may be hard to beat.
The Port Lincoln teams have new coaches guiding them this year in both grades, with only one of last years U15 coaches continuing in his role.
The U15 Bulldogs have Kade Dufek returning who will be joined by Kellie Symons to share the role this year. Kade has previously taken on coaching duties with Ty George in 2018.

Looking to the U18 Port Lincoln teams we have two new coaches that should be valuable in providing guidance to their teams.
Coaching the U18 Bulldogs is veteran coach Andy Page. Andy is a former Lincoln Districts coach who likes to win. He oversaw the 2018 Lincoln Districts Kinlough Cup championship team and has coached winning Kinlough Cup teams over 3 decades and is well known in EP footy.
Finally, the U18 Kangaroos coach is Shaun Maxfield. A runner-up Mail Medalist in the PLFL and experienced A Grade footballer with the Wayback FC, Shaun is sure to be a valuable leader for the Kangaroos.
