Article by North Beach FC

Four-time North Beach A-Grade premiership player Shane Paap has been appointed the club’s senior coach.

Paap, who retired at the end of the 2012 season after a decorated playing career with both North Beach and Subiaco, has spent the last five years building his coaching resume and is perfectly poised to take the club to another level.

The senior role was vacated by David Hynes after five years at the helm after taking the club to the grand final this year and successive finals series.

Paap has been both reserves coach and an assistant senior coach at Subiaco in the last four years after being an assistant coach at Claremont in 2013.
