NORTH Warrnambool Eagles are ready to launch into season 2019 with a new coach.
The Eagles have farewelled mentor Graeme Twaddle after four seasons at the helm with six-time Hampden league premiership coach Adam Dowie announced as his replacement for next season.
The Eagles endured an up and down 2017 campaign, with a number of close losses costing them a spot up the ladder.
They finished in bottom place with five wins.
Twaddle is bullish about the Eagles’ prospects going forward with their younger brigade showing promise.
North Warrnambool Eagles are still alive in the open netball and will play Port Fairy in the first semi-final at Mortlake on Sunday.
