MOOREBANK Magpies Australian Football Club are aiming to fly high again in 2013.
A determined coach Mark Coles and his assistant Greg Hunt want to see the Magpies back on the semi-final perch.
Mark Currant has been appointed third grade coach and life member Tony Radecki is in charge of the under 18s.
Coles said an horrific injury toll saw the Magpies descend to eighth in the Sydney Football League competition in first grade this season.
"But we did claim victories against both grand finalists," Coles said.
"But that was last season and we can't change that, and we are now focused on 2013.
"The club is buzzing with expectation about next season.
"While we did have a lot of injuries it did give a lot of players an opportunity to play senior football that may not have had otherwise and those players will be better for the that experience."
Coles said one of the most important appointments for the club is strength and conditioner, Levih Warby.
"Levih has a background working with professional sports teams for the past five years and he is a great recruit for the club," Coles said.
"Levih and his assistant Paul Markou will oversee our physical development and implement the right training programs."
The club will have seniors teams in second, third and fifth divisions and enter the under-18s competition.
Last season the under 18s just missed the finals. Many of the team were playing their first season of footy.
