The Village Motors Redcliffe Dolphins are pleased to announce Troy Lindsay as their new Head Coach.


Lindsay, a prominent club identity and all-time record holder for Queensland/Intrust Super Cup matches, will steer the Dolphins as the 2014 Intrust Super Cup coach.


He replaces John Dixon, who the club recognises has done a great job since arriving four years ago from Super Leagues Celtic Crusaders.


Lindsay has served his coaching apprenticeship at the club over recent years in various roles, most notably leading the Redcliffe Dolphins Colts to a premiership as coach in 2012.


The club is moving in a new and exciting direction by appointing Troy. His playing statistics in this competition speak for themselves and the qualities that he displayed during his 314 first grade games as a player will serve him in good stead for the next step in his coaching career, Dolphins CEO Grant Cleal said.


There will also be a change in the clubs strength and conditioning role with former premiership-winning player Damian Richters replacing Aaron Wheeler. Mark Shipway will continue in his role as assistant coach with the Intrust Super Cup team.


I am looking forward to the role of heading up the coaching staff at Redcliffe, coaching the Colts last season really had me keen for a new challenge and for that to come at the Dolphins is really special, Lindsay said.
