Luis Alvarez-Harris will coach the Thunder in 2018.

NEW Bendigo Thunder coach Luis Alvarez-Harris says he doesn’t have to change much to continue the club’s premiership-winning ways.

The club introduced Alvarez-Harris to its playing group and supporters on Monday night, following the departure of 2017 premiership coach Cherie O’Neill.

Alvarez-Harris is a premiership player with Kyabram District Football League club Stanhope and has been involved with youth girls academy programs.

“The club’s in a really good position so it’s a very exciting opportunity for me to get involved,” he said.

“Women’s footy is taking off all over the place and obviously the Thunder has been very successful and hopefully I can add a few bits and pieces and continue the fantastic platform that’s already been built by everyone before me.”

It has been a busy week for the club, which hosted Richmond’s VFL side for an invitational VFL screening session at the QEO last Friday.

Around 100 players were in attendance, with several Thunder stars invited to trial with the Tigers under the watchful eye of Richmond’s women’s football operations boss Kate Sheahan.
