Blackburn Junior Hawks are delighted to be able to announce Matt Darlow as their new Director of Hockey for the 2016/17 Season.
The Blackburn Hawks senior team Head Coach has agreed to take on responsibility for the junior section of the club too, bringing his 20 years of coaching experience to the club as a whole. Matt replaces outgoing Director of Hockey, Iain Hanson who has decided to retire at the end of the 2015/16 season. Under Iain’ guidance the fortunes of the Blackburn Juniors have changed dramatically, and the impact that Iain has had around the place cannot be understated.
Matt comes to the role as Director of Hockey after an impressive 20 years of coaching, with experience of head coach roles at all levels and twice nominated for coach of the year at senior level. His appointment will cause excitement throughout the club, and we are looking forward to Matt getting to work developing the good talent that we have in the junior ranks
