Jenks Appointed as Senior Coach for 2012


Bryan 'Bruno' Edlong played with the Tigers in 2006. Before that he played at Strathpine and had a stint at Aspley after leaving us. He has a wealth of knowledge for football and will be a huge benefit to the team


Shane Ward. Wardy's won 2 Senior Best & Fairests and played in the same three winning premierships as me at the Tigers. He is a bookworm when it comes to footy and his enthusiastic approach will greatly benefit our group


Tim 'Toolie' Backhouse earnt a reputation as a feared defender during his career. His transition from retired long serving player to coaching group member is a credit to his loyalty to the Tigers and his passion for developing the players of the future will be a great asset for the club.


These guys will work closely with me and the yet to be appointed reserves coach and with the playing list ever growing things are looking bright for the future at the Tigers.

Steve Jenkins

Senior Coach.


The Redcliffe Tigers are pleased to announce that Steve Jenkins will continue in his position as Senior Coach for the Redcliffe Tigers in 2012.

Jenks has been a long serving member of the Tigers since joining the club back in 2000. Since then he has donned the Tigers jumper more than 150 times which includes 3 Senior Premierships (02,05,08) from 4 Grand Final appearances. Jenksy was Vice Captain of the 2002 Premiership team and playing assistant coach in 2007. After being a key contributor in the Seniors Premiership year of 2008, 2009 was personally Jenksy's best year. He won the Seniors Best & Fairest and Players Player award whilst again being a playing assistant coach. In 2010, Steve was rewarded for his commitment and dedication to the club and was named Senior Captain.

With a number of U18 players coming through the racks to Senior football in 2011, it was imperative for the club to appoint the right Senior Coach to ensure these players adapt to Senior football in a way that they will aspire to be a long serving player for the Tigers and help them achieve the goals they wish to reach, and again, Jensky was the Man....

Jenks will be carefully selecting his coaching staff for 2012 over the coming weeks and will be announced as soon as positions are filled.

For people interested in joining the journey to success, please let us know. There are many positions that need to be filled on Match Days. Positions include, Water Carriers, Goal Umpire, Boundary Umpire, Score Board Attendants, Time Keeper, Interchange Stewart, Umpires Escort, Canteen Volunteers.


New Players also Welcome.

All Ages.....

The Redcliffe Tigers caters for all ages, Auskick through to Masters, and hopefully a Girls/Ladies team coming soon.
