Lyon docks at Fremantle
Ross Lyon arrived in Perth today to officially commence his duties as the fifth senior coach of the Fremantle Dockers.
After flying in from Melbourne, Lyon will spend the next few days meeting football department staff and other key club personnel.
“I’m really excited about being here at Freo and I want to get across as much as possible as soon as possible,” Lyon said.
“I’m looking forward to meeting everyone, but in the short-term, in particular, with all of the football department staff and other key personnel at the club (the players are on leave).
“What I can say at this early stage is that it is clear that planning for the 2012 pre-season is already well advanced.”
Lyon said he was also keen for his wife, Kirsten, and their three children to set up home and be settled in Perth as soon as possible.
