We’re delighted to announce our coaching line up for 2019/20 season – our first as an England Korfball League club.
Darryl Light and Steph Watson will coach our 1st and 2nd team this season. Darryl will take the reins until Christmas with Steph returning in the new year, once her baby has arrived.
Darryl brings plenty of coaching experience having previously coached our Development Squad. We look forward to having Steph’s wealth of korfballing expertise back at the club after she guided the 1sts to promotion last season. Steph was part of the Trojans team who won the England Korfball League title last year and has previously represented England at European and World Championships.
Chris Thompson will be taking over our Development Squad, continuing the excellent work of Rosie Oxenbury who lead the 3rd and 4th teams in the past few seasons. The 3rd team are looking forward to the challenge of promotion into the London Regional League whilst the 4ths are looking to improve on their position after a strong first season in LKA 2.
Last but not least Dennis Hartsink will start as 5th team coach and will lead weekly club sessions on a Wednesday, taking over from Helen Gilmore. We look forward to the experience Dennis will share from his time playing in The Netherlands. The 5th team are looking to build on the progress made in LKA 3.
A huge thank you to Rosie Oxenbury and Helen Gilmore for the fantastic effort they have put into coaching over the past few years. They’ve had a huge impact on the club.
Our trials for the 1st and 2nd team Squad will take place on 5th and 12th September; with our trials for 3rd and 4th team Development Squad on 3rd and 10th September.
Our weekly club session every Wednesday has already begun.
