A familiar face will lead the North Warrnambool Eagles for the 2018 with Graeme Twaddle set to take on the role of sole head coach.

Twaddle, who has shared coaching duties the past three seasons, had indicated he would not be applying for reappointment for next season, but found he had unfinished business when leading the recruitment process for a new coach.

The club released a statement on Monday afternoon announcing his appointment.

“Given his extensive coaching experience and contribution to our club over many years as both coach and recruiter, we are very excited to have Graeme accept the position for the upcoming season,” the statement read.

“With out 2017 year finishing on such a high note with both reserves and under 18.5s bringing home premierships, we’re looking forward to building on this momentum and continuing to grow with a whole club approach again in 2018.”
