The Maylands resident recently appointed technical assistant coach for the NBL team said he would not abandon his Morley-based squad.

‘I’ll still be able to coach the Eagles next season and plan to,’ he told the Eastern Reporter.

After a tough 2010 season with rival SBL side Rockingham Flames, Forde was let go by the club but quickly found a new home with East Perth.

‘Since then we’ve had two grand final appearances in the men and women’s competition, so it was the right move in the long run,’ he said.

He said anything he learnt under the direction of Wildcats’ head coach and head assistant coach could transfer over to his East Perth team.

Forde began his Wildcat’s career with an extensive four-day season planning session.

‘Trevor Gleeson is the new head coach, so he’ll be looking to outline his systems and the best way to implement them,’ he said.

‘My role deals with game footage for scouting purposes. I will work closely with Andy Stewart who is the head sssistant coach, as well as assisting him with the Wildcats Academy.

‘It’s something I’ve been working towards for some time, so the hard work has started to get me these chances to progress in my career.’
