Eels star takes up challenge of helping coach Sydney CBD FC

☐ Eels Halfback Mitchell Moses has pulled on the coaching guernsey at Sydney CBD FC.

PARRAMATTA Eels Halfback, Mitchell Moses has taken a slightly different approach to his training this season.

With more than 100 NRL matches under his belt, Moses has picked up a whistle and soccer to help coach Sydney CBD FC, who compete in the Eastern Suburbs Football Association.
The move comes after the amateur soccer club playfully challenged Moses to join their team on social media.
The Parramatta star said he was looking forward to a change in pace and working with a team who, being transparent, are in dire need of a bit of confidence.
Having been knocked down by their competitors of late, Sydney CBD FC have had a tough couple of months, and are looking forward to some luck in the form of Moses on their side.
Conor Reilly, Captain of Sydney CBD FC, said having Mitch join Sydney CBD FC couldn’t come at better time, especially in the lead-up to a big match on the May 25 against Phoenix FC.
“Having lost twice to them last year (2-1 and 5-3) we really need to turn the tide around and there’s a lot at stake here when it comes to pride,” Reilly said.
While he may learn some tips from the soccer team about another game entirely, Moses will be giving the team a masterclass in confidence.
Mosses also approached Head & Shoulders who jumped on board to help Sydney CBD FC with new kits and a fresh look, “which will hopefully contribute to them bringing their A-game moving forward”.
At the end of a difficult 2018 season, Moses returned to pre-season with a renewed sense of dedication to return to his best self and work on being the player he wanted to be.
“The end of 2018 was a knock to my confidence because of how I was playing and of the way the team was performing,” he said.
“We have a lot of work to do but things are turning around already this season.
“Hopefully I can bring some of that learning to the boys at Sydney CBD FC and help them turn their season around, starting with a win against Phoenix FC.
“And hopefully, by putting myself in my coach’s shoes, I’ll be able to learn a thing or two and be more receptive to feedback through my own NRL training.”
