NEW ROLE: Nick Pekin will join Horsham Demons senior coach Brad Hartigan at the helm this season. Picture: PAUL CARRACHERHORSHAM Demons will add another coach to the mix this year.
Nick Pekin will join senior coach Brad Hartigan, having worked as his assistant last year.
Hartigan said he was happy to have Pekin step up as coach for the 2015 Wimmera Football League season.
‘‘It will be a good step in his development to come on board as a coach,’’ he said.
‘‘Since Nick has been with us, he has made strides in his development every year.’’
Hartigan said about 20 juniors would come up from the under-17s to play senior football for the Demons this year.
‘‘Some of them have already played senior football,’’ he said.
‘‘We should have plenty of people to choose from for the senior side and the blokes who put the effort in with pre-season training will be the ones who are rewarded.’’
Hartigan said pre-season started last week.
The Demons will look to defend their 2014 premiership this year.
‘‘We trained for about a month before Christmas to keep everyone in shape and then took a break,’’ Hartigan said.
