Souths Logan Magpies would like to announce the 3 year contract extension of Intrust Super Cup Head Coach Jon Buchanan, better known and “JB”.

Buchanan originally signed a 1 year deal ending at the end of the 2017 season, but his contract has been extended for a further 3 seasons until the end of 2020.

“I’m really pleased I’ve been able to extend my contract with the Magpies, the support in my first year here has been terrific from the Players, Board Members, Sponsors & Staff “ Buchanan said.

The Magpies are currently in 5th position on the Intrust Ladder, and are aiming towards their first finals appearance since 2011.

“I’m very excited to continue to work with a club with such a strong Junior Development arm, over the years the catchment has produced some of the games finest players and this season we have used 10 local juniors in our Intrust Super Cup team“ Buchanan added.

This weekend the Magpies are up against 4th place Easts Tigers at Davies Park.

“The club is very excited to have signed JB to a long term deal, he came to us this year in a part time role as the head coach, which in itself at this level is very commendable.  We are now in a position to give JB a full time role as head coach of the Magpies. To have a coach of JB’s ability prepared to sign a long term agreement with our club is a massive boost to the Magpies and where we are headed in the competition. His positive influence from day 1 is evidenced by our current position on the table. Given the opportunity to be a full time coach again will be a mutual benefit to both Jon and the club as we head into the back of 2017 and the start of the 2018 season” Souths Logan Magpies CEO Jim McClelland said. “The club has been very fortunate over the years to attract quality coaches and JB is definitely top shelf when it comes to coaches in our state” McClelland added.


The week that was…

This week sees us take on the Tigers at Davies park in U20’s & Intrust Super Cup, in what will certainly be a great afternoon of Footy. Sunday’s game is a match up that sees 4th v 5th with the winner claiming bragging rights as we head towards the Finals. A massive crowd is expected at Davies Park, in what should be a great game of footy.

With our Old Boys Day and Sponsors and Guardians joining us in the Beer Booth, there will be plenty of support to cheer the boys on and I’m sure plenty of memories relived by some of the former greats of the Magpies.

Congratulations Phil and Courtney on the birth of their Son Korbin ‘Phillip John” Dennis, Phil certainly had a big week playing his 250th Intrust Super Cup game and celebrating the birth of his Baby Boy!

Exciting news on the re-signing of Head Coach Jon Buchanan. The club is very fortunate to have re-signed Jon for the next three seasons. As we all know JB is a quality coach, well respected by his players and his peers and will continue to play a very important role in the immediate future of the Magpies.

So if you’re not doing anything on Sunday, head on down to Davies Park!

Until next week…
