Dublin Uni step up search for new coach

Dublin University’s men’s first team are searching for a new coach for the 2011/12 season following Niall Denham’s decision to step down from the post after two years at the helm.

Denham has decided to move to Wales next season to pursue further coaching opportunities, opening up the position for a coach to take on a side which could potentially play in division one should they cause an upset against UCD in the promotion/relegation playoff.

As such, the club has released a statement to go with their search for a coach, saying: “With a young and capable side, featuring numerous underage provincial and international players, it is hoped to gain a beneficial and mutually acceptable agreement between coach and team as they look to build on current form as they aim for the playoff this season and strive for Division 1 next year.

“As the oldest club in Ireland, DUHC offers a unique challenge to coaches, both young and old, as they look to reclaim some of their former glory and, with flexible budgets, it is hoped to attract a coach of a calibre with similar aims.

“Although experience is desirable in the job; it is not a prerequisite and DUHC would welcome all applicants to forward their CV or a cover letter to fhillduhc@gmail.com.”

They conclude by thanking Denham for his “enthusiastic work and time he has put into the club in developing it and the players within it and his presence in the club shall be missed. We wish him all the best in his future career in Wales.”
