Alan Wall appointed U16 Boys head coach
Scottish Hockey is delighted to announce the appointment of Alan Wall as Head Coach for the Scotland under 16 Boys programme on a two year contract. Alan is no stranger to the under 16 Boys programme, having served as assistant coach to Chris Duncan – who has stepped down after three years as head coach to concentrate on his assistant coach role with Scotland Senior Women.
Head of Performance Andy Tennant said “We are delighted that Alan has shown the commitment to step up to the head coach role – and continues to develop the skills and knowledge required to build on the natural attributes he brings to the coaching environment. Tennant added “Alan is a progressive young coach whose philosophy aligns with the vision we have for coaching in our talent pathway – and we are looking forward to him working with the new intake of young male athletes to our national programme.”
The incoming head coach will continue in his role as head coach of Inverleith Women, while also working at Edinburgh Academy, where he supports the ongoing development of the hockey programme at the school – and links to Inverleith Hockey Club.
He stated “I am both delighted and honoured to be appointed as Head Coach to the boys U16 team. Having worked under Chris for the past 3 years I am excited to lead a programme myself and look forward to the challenges ahead.”
The under 16 programme will commence towards the end of the year, following the completion of the assessment and selection process.
