Restructuring of the Thunder program was the reason coming out of the AFLNT yesterday for Currys shock departure, less than two weeks after the club won the NEAFL premiership. Curry was contacted in Bali yesterday after officially leaving the job last Friday. I havent been given any official reason, Curry said. It was only when Joel (general manager of community football Joel Bowden) told me I was finishing up that I knew I didnt have the job any more. I was keen to continue. I didnt move up here to work for six months, thats for sure. Bowden told the NT News the AFLNT has exercised a (six month) clause within Currys contract that meant his employment ceased last Friday. We AFLNT drops axe as Curry punted wish him well, thank him for his efforts and hope he takes a lasting memory of NT Thunders premiership in 2015 with him, Bowden said. With the incoming CEO Mi chael Solomon starting this week, he will review and reconfigure the structure of the AFLNT and more than likely there will not be a role there for a general manager of Thunder. Its never an easy thing to do, ending someones employment. But it was a decision taken by the management of AFLNT and were now moving forward and preparing for an imminent NTFL season. Incoming AFLNT boss Michael Solomon wants to make sure the structure and the way Territory football was engineered was the right mix to enable maximum exposure of the game.
