    Sea Eagles Add to Coaching Staff
    Matt Trodden
    25/11/2011 12:53:02 PM

    Manly Sea Eagles are proud to announce David Penna and Matt Parish have joined the first grade coaching staff for the 2012 season.

    Both Penna and Parish will work under new head coach Geoff Toovey as assistant coaches in 2012, beginning their roles immediately.

    Penna joins the first grade staff after a four year stint as the head coach of the Sea Eagles Toyota Cup team, and a successful 155 game first grade playing career with Parramatta and Souths. Penna also coached Italy in 2009 during their Mediterranean Shield campaign.

    Parish joins the Sea Eagles from Salford City Reds in the English Super League after a six month stint as head coach.

    He had previously been an assistant at North Queensland under Neil Henry, and in representative teams with the Country Origin and NSW State of Origin sides under Laurie Daley and Ricky Stuart respectively. Parish also played 55 first grade games for Balmain between 1988-1993.

    Head coach Geoff Toovey said that while it will take time to settle in, both coaches will contribute a lot to the team.

    “We’re still settling in here, there is a little bit of a transition period,” Toovey said.

    “Both are successful coaches in their own right, and we’re looking for plenty of input from them throughout the year.”

    Sea Eagles captain Jamie Lyon also said that he was excited to work with both coaches, particularly the new coach in Parish.

    “We’re looking forward to having Matt on board,” Lyon said.

    “He comes with a big wrap, and a lot of people have a high opinion of him, so I’m looking forward to working with Matt.”

    Both Penna and Parish were on board for the Sea Eagles’ first full training session this morning, where the squad were put through their paces in the driving rain.
