AFTER the seasonal break from this year's resounding NCF Premiership, Coffs United will head back into off-season training at the start of the year with Mike Smith keen to continue as first grade coach.

United capped off 2013 with a 2-1 win against the Storm in the grand final with Smith saying after the celebrations he was "unsure" of carrying on with the team.

With almost a 100% record last season, there were calls from players and management for him to resume his post.

The annual general meeting tonight will include discussions about the current state of the club as well as the up-coming season.

President of Coffs United, Glenn Pearson said details of first team coaches will be also be discussed.

"It's always hard straight after a grand final and regular season to speculate whether a coach will stay on or not. It's something that needs to be discussed over the next few weeks and something we'll be covering at the AGM on Wednesday," Glenn said, speaking ahead of the meeting.

However, Mike Smith was confident that he would carry on in the job.

"To be quite honest I haven't even thought about it, but I'm pretty sure I'll continue on as coach.

"With the AGM on Wednesday, it will be a good chance to get the ball moving. I've still got to see who's playing for next year," Smith said.

"The bulk of the team will still be there, but there are kids who go to uni and some of them move away from the area."

The meeting will be at the Coffs Hotel backroom at 6pm.

 

EYES ON THE FUTURE: Coffs United will be discussing key points past, present and future as their AGM kicks off at the Coffs Hotel.
