Launceston City have confirmed that Roger Hardwicke will continue to coach their NPL Tasmania side for the 2021 season.
The announcement means both the North's statewide sides will remain under the same leadership following similar confirmation that Alex Gaetani would continue to lead Riverside Olympic.
City also announced that club life member and former NPL coach Lino Sciulli would be an assistant coach with Robert Murray continuing in the same role.
A post on the Prospect club's Facebook page said: "Whilst we acknowledge the results weren't visible on the NPL Tasmania ladder, the club feels that progress was made through Roger's implementation of football philosophies and playing style.
"The club recognises that change does not yield instant results and is part of a longer-term process that we anticipate will bring about future success."
Olympic reappointed Gaetani in the role of NPL coach and technical director on November 12.
Both clubs expect to make further announcements on coaching positions during the off-season.
Meeting of minds
All four of Launceston's senior soccer clubs have annual meetings coming up.
In chronological order, they are:
- Launceston City: 3pm, Sunday, November 29, Prospect Park.
- Northern Rangers: 6pm, Monday, November 30, NTCA Ground.
- Launceston United: 6.30pm, Monday, December 7, Birch Avenue.
- Riverside Olympic: 6.30pm, Tuesday, December 8, Windsor Park.
Keen to build on the state's largest junior participation as it seeks to join the statewide women's competition, United urged supporters to help out.
"If you are interested in becoming involved with the club committee as a member for the 2021 season or looking to become involved at any level, please come along," it said on Facebook.
"In 2020 LUSC became the largest club in Tasmania for player numbers and we require a huge amount of help from volunteers to keep our club heading in the right direction.
"We are looking forward to another great season and are keen to recruit more female committee members heading into the 2021 season, with a potential Women's Super League team representing the club and to also reflect the greater number of girls and women involved at our club."
Both Launceston NPL sides are taking part in Football Tasmania's Summer Statewide Youth Championship Series.
Riverside hosted its first round of games for under-14, -16 and -18 teams at Windsor Park before the club's end of season function on Saturday.
Meanwhile City have recorded some impressive results playing their games at Churchill Park.
"This series is for aspirational and talented youth players and is a welcomed initiative from Football Tasmania," Olympic said on Facebook.
