Nottinghamshire Hockey Association is delighted to announce the appointment of Matthew Orridge as Head Coach for the Senior Men’s County Squad.
Matt is currently a coach at Belper Hockey Club and has been a part of the County setup for the last 6 years, firstly as a player and then as Assistant Coach last season.
“I feel I have the experience and drive to succeed in this role, I have been in and around the county set up for a few years and understand the needs of a tournament weekend.”
“I have a good relationship with players from previous squads and many players from clubs around Nottinghamshire. This I believe is vital when attracting players to the trials and keeping the tight bond that there has been in previous squads.”
“I was disappointed with the outcome from last years tournament and feel that I have learnt valuable lessons from this experience, both from working with the players and from what is needed for the tournament format.”
Good luck Matt!
Stay tuned for an announcement regarding the format of trials and training sessions for this year’s campaign
