AFL pre-season news, AFL draft, Melbourne Demons, Simon Goodwin, Darren Burgess

Melbourne officially started its pre-season at The Tan on Monday morning and will spend extra time at the iconic running destination this summer as they look to bounce back from a nightmare 2019.

Under new high performance boss Darren Burgess, who returned to the AFL after two years at English Premier League powerhouse Arsenal following two separate stints at Port Adelaide around key fitness roles at Liverpool and the Socceroos, the Demons will spend Saturday mornings running up the hills and around the Royal Botanic Gardens.

Melbourne chairman Glen Bartlett, senior coach Simon Goodwin, head of football Josh Mahoney and Burgess outlined how the Demons will respond after they finished 17th this year with only five wins – 12 months after they ended a 12-year finals drought by reaching a preliminary final – at a members forum on Tuesday night.
