Maguire and Walker secure new coaching jobs

Glenanne Sports Club have announced the appointment of Dean Maguire as head coach of their ladies first team for the 2011/2012 season, taking over from Guy Garrett who stepped down at the end of last term.

Maguire, who hails originally from Zimbabwe, will be assisted by long time Glenanne member and former Leinster senior men’s team coach Noel Keogh for the duration of the season.

He brings Irish experience from his time with Weston while he is also involved with King’s Hospital. Dearbhla Kieran (pictured) has taken over as captain of the team, while Barbara O’Malley will continue as manager.

Three Rock Ladies, meanwhile, have secured the services of Geoff Walker to coach their first team for the upcoming season.

Walker takes over the reins from Niall Denham who has emigrated to Wales. The new man brings a wealth of experience despite his young age having worked with Corinthian ladies for the past few seasons as well as the Leinster boy’s underage setup.
