Jill Poots has been appointed as the new executive manager of Ulster Hockey by province’s management board, formally taking up the role on August 28, 2017 and will be responsible for the promotion, development and management of all hockey in the province.
Poots joins Ulster Hockey following a very successful career with Sport Northern Ireland in both Performance and Governance managerial roles and is looking forward to working with the Ulster Hockey staff and supporting the management board in their Strategic Direction.
She played squash at international level for Ireland and hockey at club level for the Victorians and Coleraine clubs while she has a son and a daughter who both play hockey.
“The Board and the Staff warmly welcome Jill Poots to this demanding role and wish her every success,” said Ulster Hockey chair Billy Pollock.
“I am also sure all of the Ulster Hockey family will join me in congratulating Jill on her selection from a list of high calibre candidates and will actively support Jill in her new role.”
