As the Christmas break has arrived I hope all of our club members and supporters have an enjoyable holiday season and you are looking forward to dusting off the football boots in a couple of months time (or sooner for some!). There are a couple of important xmas announcements to share with you:
It is my pleasure to announce the senior coaching appointments for the coming season. We have appointed Paul Phillips as Head Coach of our Premier Men team and Craig Johnston as Head Coach of our Premier Women team. Paul has recently arrived into New Zealand from the United Kingdom where he has been in coach and coach educator roles at the University of South Wales, Aberdale Town F.C. and most recently for the University of Birmingham. Paul is passionate about coach education with his roles and qualifications in delivering coach education into grassroots and professional sports – including recently working alongside Birmingham City F.C. Academy. Paul is looking forward to getting to know Dunedin and the local football scene. We warmly welcome him to Tech.
Our Premier Women coach Craig Johnston will need no introduction for the majority of our readers. We are very pleased that Craig has accepted the role after being Assistant Coach of the team for the past three seasons.
