Springbank coach Troy Beamond has called time on his tenure with Springbank.
Beamond took the reins for the 2018 season following the resignation of Michael Searl.
The Tigers were knocked out in the semi-final by Waubra after finishing just outside the top four on the Central Highlands Football League ladder.
Beamond said in a post on the club’s social media page that it was with a “sense of sorrow” that he was stepping down from the helm.
But he said he was no longer the right man to give the club the necessary time to take it to where it wants to go.
"It takes a great deal of time, effort and commitment to perform the role at a high standard. And you guys, the playing group, deserve someone who is fully committed to you, the club and the role,” Beamond said.
"Unfortunately with family, work, the travel factor and the mental strain coaching can take, something has to give and that is coaching the Springbankbank FNC.”
Beamond said he was immensely proud of the group’s efforts and thanked them for the season and wished the club well going forward.
"I leave feeling very proud of what we achieved this year.
"We were undermanned for most of the year, but nobody threw the towel in...it is important to me that you guys know how much I appreciate your efforts.”
Beamond’s coaching journey began with Geelong West St Peters, where he played until retirement at the age of just 23.
He spent time as a senior assistant under Mark Russell at Sebastopol in 2008 and 2009 and held roles with the Ballarat Football League interleague squad.
Beamond was part of the coaching staff at Werribee in the VFL and also held the Portarlington senior job in 2013.
