Shawn Filo and Corey Greer will remain co-coaches of Kangaroo Flat in the BFNL in 2018.

The Roos announced on Monday that the duo had been re-signed for another season.

“We expect to turn everything around considering the number of serious injuries we have endured (this year),’’ Filo and Greer said in a statement.

“We will recruit the right people to the club and we are buoyed by the fact that we have an excellent junior program that will see several players step up to senior level for the 2018 season. 

“We believe success will come by promoting our juniors and we have successfully done this during the season with several under-18 players getting their opportunity to play senior football. We just need a few bigger bodies to help our young team continue to develop.’’

Meanwhile, former senior coach Jason Stevens will return to a coaching role with the Roos  as coach of the under-18 team.
