Birregurra has rewarded senior coach Ricky O’Toole for keeping the Saints in premiership contention despite their injury-ravaged season, re-signing him for 2020.
Saints president Mick Paddick announced today that the champion Geelong export would go around again.
“We can’t recall a year with so many injuries and player unavailabilities so to still be sitting in the five is a huge credit to Ricky,” he said.
“We’ve spoken to the senior leadership group as well as members and committee and they’ve all endorsed him, it was unanimous, so we’ve re-signed him for next year.”
