Blackburn Junior Hawks Ice Hockey Club would like to reassure its members that Director of Hockey, Matt Darlow currently remains in post at the club.
With his departure from the senior team, the Blackburn Hawks, much speculation has surfaced regarding his role with the juniors. We would like to use this statement to reaffirm our support for Matt, and the work he is doing with the juniors. Matt has been a very proactive member of our management committee, working tirelessly to give our young Ice Hockey players all the opportunities to develop within our organisation, and the wider Ice Hockey community. He has already had a positive effect on all of our players, and the way they play the game.
As I am sure everyone can understand, this is a difficult time for Matt, and we have given him time to think over what is best for him. He will continue with his daily duties whilst coming to a decision on how to move forward. As a management team, we all hope that this decision is to continue with the work he has started here with us. We encourage all our members to send Matt messages of support so he knows what a difference he is making to our children, and how he can continue with this in the longer term.
