New Head Coach Announcements 1st and 2nd XIs for 2018/19 Season
Posted by:

In May 2018, both the Ladies 1s and Men's 1s started advertising for a new Head Coach . . .  we are now pleased to confirm the services of two new coaches, plus a new 2nd XI Ladies coach.

Firebrands HC is pleased to welcome back Pete Atwell back to the club, this time in the role of Ladies First Team Coach, where he hopes to take the team up to National League, after being relegated before the start of last season. During last season, the 1st XI managed to pull together and a few quality additions meant that they more than held their own in West Prem. 2018/19 is set to be a big year, and it'll be great to see the ladies pushing for that top 4! As well as the 1st XI, it's also really exciting for us to annouce that Elgan Jones will be coaching the Ladies 2nd XI for the coming season. Having stepped in for the last few games of last season and helping them to ensure survival in West Prem 2, we are looking forward to seeing what is possible with a full season of having Elgan at the helm!

We are also really happy to announce the appointment of Corbett Sykes-Moore as Men's 1st Team Head Coach for 2018/19. Corbett comes with rave reviews, and we are looking forward to having his energy and ambition around to take the team forward. This year is going to be even more competitive than most, and following a few years of finishing lower than we would have liked, we are confident our new coach and some already confirmed incomings can help take us up to the expanded National League. It's also great that we are able to once again count on the expereince and nouse of Ali Price, who helped guide the 2nd XI to promotion last season to continue his great work with that squad.

More coaching announcements regarding the rest of the club are still to come.

It's a big year for the 1st team squads, particularly with the lure of entering into the new expanded national league in 2019/20. We wanted to make a statement of our intent by getting our coaching line-up sorted this month, so that we can now focus on pre-season preparations. If you want to be kept up with pre-season information please send the club an email and we can add you to the mailing list.

Thank you very much,

Ben Roberts

Firebrands HC Chairman
