A prolific figure in NT footy, Colleen Gwynne, has been named as the Darwin-based assistant coach for the Adelaide Crows womens team.
Gwynne will join Crows senior assistant, Andrew Hodges, at the helm for the inaugural season of the AFL Women's League.
Her impressive coaching-record speaks for itself, having never lost a game as a coach and steering the Waratah Football Club to five consecutive NTFL women's flags, including last seasons win over the Wanderers.
Last month Gwynne was also recognised for her unparalleled standing in women's football in the Territory by having the NTFL's best and fairest medal in the Women's Premier League division named in her honour.
Hodges said he was excited to have someone of Gwynne's calibre alongside him.
There were a lot of very capable and well-respected people who applied for the role and after the extensive interview process Gwynney is certainly a welcome inclusion to the team.
I am sure she can teach me a trick or two and I know the players will find she is a wealth of knowledge, Hodges said.
The inclusion of Gwynne now completes the coaching structure for the Adelaide Football Clubs women's team.
Head coach Bec Goddard will be assisted in Adelaide by Mark Moody, while senior assistant, Hodges, will have Gwynne's support.
