Fragiacomo?s new role
FORMER Gladstone Mudcrabs player Brett Fragiacomo is back in Central Queensland and wearing new colours.
Fragiacomo started as the new AFL Queensland Central Queensland development officer on Tuesday replacing John Timms, who left for Adelaide on April 20.
Based in Rockhampton, Fragiacomo will also make his debut for Brothers today in their match-of-the-round clash against the Glenmore Bulls at Rockhampton's Stenlake Park.
Fragiacomo plans to start in the backline while he builds up his fitness having last played competitive football midway through last year.
Some of his new team mates aren't strangers with Fragiacomo having played in the Capricornia representative team with Brothers' Matt Coleman and Steve Smithwick during his one season with the Mudcrabs in 2002.
The Gladstone club ws also trying to resecure the services of their former star player this season.
After his stint in Gladstone the fitness fanatic then moved to Brisbane, winning a premiership with Morningside before his last role involved working at the Uluru Recreation Centre in the Northern Territory for 12 months.
Fragiacomo looked forward to the challenge.
"It's a role where I love footy and have a passion for this type of thing,'' he said.
"They've done a good job here in the past so now it's a matter of keeping up the good numbers in the Auskick and school programs.''
