Coaching

Our coaching line-up for the 2018/19 season sees the return of several familiar faces, with Charlie Bannister and Darrell Cassidy continuing to coach the Men’s and Women’s 1st XIs respectively. An expert line-up of student coaches is set to guide the Wanderers, Nomads, Squanderers, Bedouin and Blunderers to success.

Men’s Blues: Charlie Bannister
Charlie Bannister

Charlie Bannister, a Level 4 coach with experience coaching England U16s, returned as Men’s Blues coach in 2013.

He experienced no difficulty with his 2nd album, leading the team to 3rd position in East Premier A, BUCS promotion and Varsity victory on its initial release. His latest hits continue to be very successful with the Men’s Blues’ narrowly missing out on promotion to the new national league structure in 2019, as well as achieving BUCS promotion and victory in the 119th JMAN Group Men’s Varsity Match.

Women’s Blues: Darrell Cassidy

Darrell Cassidy continues as Women’s Blues’ coach. 

Despite having coached them for numerous seasons, Darrell remains mysterious about his past and so a full biography is still to follow.

Wanderer’s: Kieran Gilmore
Kieran Gilmore

Kieran Gilmore returns to CUHC to coach the Wanderers in 2019/2020. Having been a key member of the Men’s Blues’ since his arrival in Cambridge (too many times a blue), Kieran is now a Level 2 qualified coach and will be putting the Wanderer’s through their paces.

Nomad’s: Liv Shears

Liv Shears undoubtedly loves CUHC the most out of anyone still at the Club. Having pretty done every role you can think off, passionately carried out each and every piece of admin, Liv has now taken on the role of coaching the Nomads.
Liv once played for the Nomads, and she wilby looking to bring them back to their dominant glory days.

Squanderer’s: Campkin, Shaw, Gilmore

Oh Lord, please help the squanderers, James Campkin is mumbling the red press. Whilst Seb Shaw is acting as a translator for the squandies forwards, Sean is taking over the reins at the back. With three blues, the squandies look in safe hands.

Bedouin: Bill Taylor and Hantian Wang

Bill Taylor got off to a fantastic coaching start this year when his ideas were rejected by his own centre-backs. Han Wang now hopes to pick up the pieces. We know they can play hockey, but can they secure the Beds a victory in BDotY?
