Daylesford senior coach Zac Tisdale will have a new man on the sidelines to help him throughout the 2019 Central Highlands Football League season.
Successful Trentham junior coach Daniel Lendrec has made the move to the Bulldogs where he will work alongside Tisdale.
Tisdale, a playing coach, said Lendrec would control things off-field.
Tisdale said Lendrec had a good rapport with many of the Daylesford region’s young players, which he hoped would help the club.
“He’s got a very good footy mind and I think he’s got high goals for his football coaching career,” he said.
Lendrec has guided Trentham’s under-17.5 side to back-to-back premierships in the last two years.
Daylesford, which finished 15th under Tisdale last season, opens its 2019 campaign with a clash against arch-rivals Hepburn on Saturday, March 30.
