Redland is on the hunt for a new senior coach after Leigh Harding informed the club he would not be seeking re-appointment for 2019.

Harding has coached the Bombers for the past two seasons after spending four years on the coaching staff of the Brisbane Lions, where he guided their NEAFL side to the premiership in 2013.

But his two-year stint at Redland has yielded only four wins and one win respectively as the Bombers finished 10th on the ladder in 2018.

Redland Football Club Chairman, Colin Tobiasen, thanked Harding for his dedication to the club.

“On behalf of the board of Redland Football Club I would like to document our thanks and gratitude to Leigh for his dedication and application in coaching our club during the past two seasons,” he said.

“From our perspective no coach has worked harder or offered a greater level of professionalism towards this club and while it’s disappointing to lose Leigh a lot of his values, education, and character will hopefully be legacies that the playing group take forward in their footballing and life endeavours.”

Harding advised a delegation of the playing group of his decision on Wednesday night at the club.
