Tudor, McDonald to assist Kangaroo Flat

NORTH Melbourne assistant coach Leigh Tudor will oversee Kangaroo Flat Football Club's training session this Wednesday.

Tudor and North Melbourne director of stakeholder relations and club culture Donald McDonald will put the Roos through their paces.

Tudor, who played 68 games for Geelong and North Melbourne, has previously been an assistant coach with Sydney and St Kilda.

The 44-year-old also coached Geelong to the VFL premiership in 2007.

"Country footballers very rarely get the opportunity to listen to coaches from the AFL system and we will have two very experienced football minds at our training session this Wednesday night,'' Kangaroo Flat coach Jason Stevens said.

"I am looking forward to working with these two outstanding football people and all of our coaches and our players will gain a lot of knowledge from training under these great football mentors.’’

Roos' supporters are welcome to attend the training session.

McDonald, 51, played 155 games for North Melbourne, kicking 165 goals.

He coached Werribee to the 1993 VFL flag before leading Box Hill to the VFL premiership in 2001.

He coached Hawthorn for the final five games of 2004 after Peter Schwab was sacked.

Alistair Clarkson was appointed Hawthorn senior coach for 2005 and McDonald left the club to become an assistant coach with North Melbourne.
