Tigers appoint new coach

Claremont has announced Darren Harris' coaching successor, appointing Ashley Prescott as their new senior coach for the next three seasons.

It will be Prescott's second stint in charge of the club, having coached the Tigers from 2004 to 2007, making three Grand Finals in that time.

Prescott has spent the last 13 years in the AFL system, coaching at Essendon (2007-10), Fremantle (2011-13) and Gold Coast (2014-20) before leaving the club as part of a coaching restructure earlier this year.

Prescott played 128 games of AFL football for Richmond and Fremantle in a nine year career at the highest level, moving in to coaching the Claremont colts in 2002 while still playing for the Tigers league side.

" I am more passionate and excited than ever before to apply my skills and experience to a new and dynamic role at Claremont Football Club." said Prescott in a Claremont press release on Monday confirming his appointment.

The Tigers made their first Grand Final since 2012 this season, losing by 3 points to South Fremantle.
