Dunn has worked with the club this season as a specialist coach while Lowe will move into the Hyundai A-League coaching ranks after success at state level with junior and senior squads.

Both men have steered the WA State side and moved into the coaching arena after successful playing careers. Dunn is a former Socceroo who represented Australia on 36 occasions while Lowe, an Englishman, forged a long career mostly in his home country, including a stint with Birmingham City.

Lowe also played one season with Spearwood in the WA Premier League in the mid 1980’s, an experience that prompted his permanent move to Western Australia where he has lived for the past five years.

“It’s important to have a good understanding with your assistants and I think I’ve got that with Robbie and Kenny,” Mitchell said.

“I’m looking at adding more sessions into the training mix and they will be a vital part of ensuring our squad, and in particular our talented young players, are getting the best guidance possible.

“They both have good football brains and I’m sure we will all learn things from each other over the course of the remaining games this season,” he added.

“I think we have been able to assemble a good coaching team which has a variety of strengths. I’m sure the players will benefit from Robbie’s continued input and also the addition of Kenny to the club,” Mitchell said.
