Launceston City have scored a major coup with the appointment of former Young Socceroos captain Kurt Reynolds as their coach for the next two years.

Reynolds last played for Launceston City in 1984 before making a name for himself with the Young Socceroos and in the NSL.

He has been working in the Middle East for the past seven years and holds Asian Football Confederation coaching licences.

Reynolds takes over from Peter Savill, himself a former Leeds United player.


Sydney FC 2-1 Brisbane Roar

Att: 8,456 (lowest home attendance in Sydney FC's history!)

Wellington Phoenix 6-0 Gold Coast United.
