Former North Melbourne defender Scott Thompson and local football great Josh Finch joined Geelong’s AFLW coaching panel this week.

Thompson, who played 241 matches for the Kangaroos, will serve as an assistant coach.

Finch, a four-time Bellarine Football League best and fairest winner, will take on a development role alongside backline assistant and current Cats player Tom Stewart.

The pair will join head coach Paul Hood, assistant Natalie Wood and development coach David Morgan.

Hood said the duo will provide an “excellent” addition to the coaching team.

“Scott has enjoyed a great career at AFL level, and this is his first step into the coaching ranks,” Hood said.

“He has a strong connection to the club through his time early in his career, and he will bring a wealth of knowledge to our team.

“Josh has been a great player locally and has moved into the coaching ranks with success.

“His work at Modewarre and in our next generation academy has been first class and we are excited to welcome him to the club.”
