Darren Shortridge

Darren played all of his junior football at The Cove Football Club starting in u15’s in 1991 at 13 years old.  He played until u17 when a back injury ended his playing days.

He represented South Australia in State level and played SANFL level for Glenelg and in SFL association squads.

He began coaching u8 at the cove in 2008 and has coached all mini grades over the years in u8, u10, u12.

In 2017 he moved up to the junior Saturday football coaching the u13,u15, and assisting the u17.5 over the last few seasons.

He has also coached the year 6/7 school SAPSASA team for the past 3 years.

Over the last 13 years of coaching, Darren has enjoyed working with the players watching them develop into great footballers and people.  Last year Darren took the Under 125 boys through to the finals.

Seeing the players Darren has coached in u8 and through the years playing A grade senior football at The Cove Football Club is now is a real highlight for Darren and women’s football is his next challenge.  Darren will be an asset to the Women’s football department with extensive coaching and playing experience we expect to see  the girls thrive under his coaching.
