Campbelltown City boss Mullen to step down

Campbelltown City coach Joe Mullen has announced he will step down from his position at the conclusion of the 2019 National Premier Leagues Finals Series.

Mullen ends a hugely successful seven-year spell at the helm of the South Australian giants.

His last challenge will be to defend their 2018 Championship crown - against Lions FC, in a repeat of last season's Grand Final.

The 55-year-old, who played two times for Australia has assembled an impressive collection of silverware over the course of his time -  including Premiership and Championship victories in the NPL SA, and of course, the 2018 NPL Championship.

He earned the 2018 NPL SA Coach of the Year award for the treble of major trophies won under his tutelage by Campbelltown last season.

"It has been a pleasure to have Joe at the head of our senior group for the past seven years," said Campbelltown President Don Leombruno.

"Joe has not only delivered silverware throughout the years, but has been a true leader for our players on and off the pitch. 

"Campbelltown City SC has been privileged to have a coach of his experience and impeccable attention to detail, involved at our club."

“We would like to acknowledge Joe's dedication and commitment throughout his seven years at the club and wish him the very best in the future."
