BANNOCKBURN’s hopes of Jordyn Burke returning from Horsham have been dashed following his appointment as coach of North Ballarat City.

The Tigers had hoped the former Vic Country representative would be back at Victoria Park in 2016 to form a potent combination up forward with former Leopold spearhead Jason Tom.

“It’s by far the best opportunity I’ve had put in front of me,” Burke told Fairfax Regional Media of his appointment at the Ballarat league club.

“With the quality of the organisation and set-up that I’m heading into, it should hold me in good stead as I look to further my coaching career.

“I can’t wait. It’s a big challenge, but I’m really looking forward to it.”

Burke played 10 games and kicked 21 for the Tigers, polling 15 votes in the Whitley Medal.

However, he returned to Horsham for work and personal reasons ahead of the June 30 clearance deadline.
