Gero to guide U20s


Northcote City are delighted to announce the appointment of Jorge Gero as the Under 20 Head Coach and Andrew Pegg as his Assistant Coach ahead of 2017.

Gero has served as a Senior Assistant alongside current Senior Head Coach Zeljko Kuzman at Richmond SC, winning the NPL1 Championship in 2015.

Throughout 2016 Gero and Pegg had a successful season in charge of the St Albans Under 20 side.

Gero is looking forward to once again working alongside Kuzman, Technical Director James Muir and the other coaching staff at John Cain Memorial Park.

“I know how we work. Ultimately working with Zeljko and the coaching staff and bringing things that we’ve implemented before to Northcote is something that was very attractive to me,” Gero said.

“Northcote speaks for itself. It’s a club with fantastic tradition that has had a lot of success in the past and no doubt plenty of success in the future.”

Development into senior football is a number one priority for Gero who is eager to further build a pathway for players looking to make the step up to the first team.

“We look to put the players in some challenging situations in order to best serve their development,” he said.

“I feel totally comfortable in terms of what we’re doing, the program that we will put on the table and what we can offer the Club.”
