Introducing Mark Jones, our Technical Director
As you know, Murdoch University Melville FC is heavily reliant upon our volunteers. Without the time and efforts of parents, family and friends who volunteer as committee members, coaches and assistant coaches, team managers, referees and assistant referees and general helping hands the club would not exist.
None of these teams can take the field each week without the guidance, direction and support of a coach and the other team volunteers.
