Coaching team finalised

Streatham can confirm that both Terry England and Bill Webb will join Head Coach Jeremy Cornish on the bench this season.

England has been a long time member of the coaching team and a familiar face in South London hockey over the years. He has worked with Barry Spours, Warren Rost and Nicky Chinn as an Assistant Coach and stayed on when Cornish joined last season.

“I was very pleased to get the call from Jeremy asking me to assist him again this coming season” admitted England who played at both Streatham and Richmond in his younger days.

“When Jeremy took over last season it was a much needed breath of fresh air. Changes were, and are always inevitable in any sport if you want to compete at your best level.”

“I feel that we got the balance right and just fell short of where we wanted to finish at the end of last season, saying that, third place and two semi finals, wasn't a bad place to be after such a bad start to the campaign.” 

“With the league structure that we find ourselves in this coming season we have signed a team with talent, speed, and the determination to do well and compete at our best standard. Every game will be a new challenge and a new experience for us as a team and the fans, but rest assured we will be a team competing and looking to cause more than one or two upsets.”

Also joining for his first full season with the team is Bill Webb, who was a new face on the bench during matchights, after arriving from Wightlink Raiders alongside Cornish. Webb had previously been Assistant Coach for Bracknell Hornets between 2011 and 2014.

“I’m very pleased to be back with the team for the new season” admitted Webb.

“The change in the league structure will offer some new challenges this year but I am very excited about the team that Jeremy is putting together and can't wait for the season to get started.”

Streatham hope to announce our new fixtures very shortly and thank fans for their patience.
