He will take responsibility for our ‘Rising Redlegs’ Program and Emerging Leaders Program which are designed to fast track the internal talent of the Perth Football Club. We are excited that Chris has chosen to return the Perth. He will be a terrific ambassador for the Club and help drive our continued quest for sustained success imparting his immense knowledge of the game with our emerging players.” said Trevor Williams

“I’m extremely proud to be returning to the Perth football club, which along with Belmont football club, is where my AFL journey began. Now 14 years later, I’m back and ready to steer the next group of young players to achieving their goals.” Mayne said.

“Being back at Perth gives me the opportunity to continue to improve my craft as a teacher and coach. Being able to work with the Futures and Colts and younger senior players will allow me to showcase my ability to develop young players while giving me the opportunity to hone in on my craft and prepare me for future opportunities. 

I’ll be able to bring 14 years of AFL experience to the club and share the knowledge of working with a lot of great coaches and players.

I’m really excited about what the future brings, the Reserves won the flag this year and League played finals 2 years ago, I have a strong belief that the club is heading in the right direction and I hope I can add to that.” 


Welcome back home Chris.
