Merewether have opened up expressions of interest for their Herald Women's Premier League first-grade coaching position after successful mentor Cassandra Koppen stood down post-grand final.
Koppen took on the coaching role at United in 2015 and led the club to four grand final appearances in five years. In her first season at the helm, Merewether collected their first minor title followed by the championship in a debut grand final appearance. It was the first time a WPL club had secured the minor premiership-championship double.
The 33-year-old pharmacist then led United to back-to-back championships in 2017 and 2018 and an unprecedented three WPL grand final wins. Merewether lost this year's grand final 4-3 to New Lambton at Weston on September 1.
"We've had a really good run and time-wise it seemed fitting," Koppen said.
"I've sacrificed a lot of time and effort over the past five years and now it's time to focus on things outside of football."
Merewether United Football Club president Scott Ellis said Koppen had been "much more than a first-grade coach for the club" with plenty of work done behind the scenes as well.
"We've been very lucky," Ellis said. "She's now the most successful coach in the history of the WPL. It was her first coaching job and in the five years she's been to four grand finals and won three of them."
