Western Ravens announce coaching staff

Howard Gilbert and Shane Leat have been announced as the co-coaches for the Western Ravens 2022 Women’s Premiership campaign.

Howard has a strong foundation when it comes to the Women’s game. He led the way in implementing the Auckland AFL Women’s league, who are now into their third season and has involved in the previous two seasons of the national competition.

Shane has a long history in playing the game but is fairly new to coaching. He was part of the head coach for the Premiership winning Waitakere Magpies in 2023 Auckland AFL Women’s season and is now looking to build on his experience.

The Ravens will take on the Northern Storm and the Central Shakers in a brand new Women’s Premiership competition, starting February 26th, 2023.
