John Lamont - One-on-One With My Under-18 Coach
John Lamont is my former Oakleigh Chargers U18 coach from the elite junior talent pathway in the Australian Football League.  2020 marks 18 years since I graduated from that program, so I was keen to re-connect with JL to reminisce, and pass on what lessons I took from him and have applied to my own coaching practice.  After coaching me at Oakleigh, JL moved on to the Eastern Ranges U18, before advancing to a development coaching role at North Melbourne, and then returning to his alma mater, Werribee, for a five year stint as head coach.

Joe Montemurro - Rebuilding A Powerhouse
Arsenal Women have won 15 league titles, 14 FA Cups, and the Champions League, and are one of the historic powerhouses of women’s football.  Their coach, Joe Montemurro, burst onto the coaching scene by winning a title with Melbourne City in 2015/16 before answering the call to help rebuild Arsenal, who’d spend years in the wilderness prior to his arrival. In just his second year in charge, the Gunners returned to the top of the pile in England. I spoke to Joe on the eve of the 2019/20 season, as his team prepared to defend their title, and tackle the Champions League once more.  You can find out more about Joe at: www.arsenal.com/women/  Where Others Won’t is recorded in Toronto, Canada, and was created by Cody Royle and Adam Esker.
