Former player Dave LeMire was appointed Club Coach in 2009, with Cliff Flower his assistant. Aided by some shrewd recruiting, and comprehensive planning, Dave was able to develop a premiership team. In 2010, the A Grade was victorious against the highly fancied Prince Alfred OC in the A3 Grand Final, its first A Grade Premiership since 1981. Nathan Romeo, Andrew Whiteman, Adam Alessandrini, Patrick Connelly and Stephen White were the standout performers. Ignatius teacher Joe Pedler joined the club in 2010, and his impact was instrumental in improving the Club.
