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 are due to guide the Wanderers, Nomads, Squanderers, Bedouin and Blunderers to success.
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.
Darrell Cassidy continues as Women’s Blues’ coach. Full biography to follow.
Kieran Gilmore returns to CUHC to coach the Wanderers.
Lily Elliot does what she wants at St. Johns while TJ Jackson has converted from the Dark (Blue) side to join us for a Masters year. He has varsity experience for Oxf*rd, but has ever experienced the joys of winning on such an occasion, hence the move to the Light Blues.
Joe Rich and Jamie Bristow guide this years Squanderers side. Joe will be looking for the Squanderers to shut the back door, placing an emphasis on defending, while Jamie Bristow will be focussing on the other end of the pitch, giving advice on how to play in the attacking section.
Emily Thorpe, Sally Bradley and Claire Bond have taken on the role of Bedouin coaches for the 2015/16 season. The three Blues boast a lot of hockey experience between them and will be hoping to lead the Beds to both promotion and another Varsity victory.
