UK School & Hockey Club Benefit from Aussie Coach

Posted by | 19 November 2014 | News


Alderley Edge Hockey Club in Cheshire, England is a thriving village club running 7 men’s teams, 6 Ladies teams and has 300 junior members. The Club works closely with local primary and secondary schools to develop junior players. Recently a local Secondary School , The King’s School in Macclesfield were looking to add to their hockey coaching team and Alderley Edge Hockey Club offered to help them recruit for the position.

The club contacted Recruitment 4 Hockey about the position. A role at the school for a quality coach who could play for the Men’s first team at weekends and deliver some junior coaching sessions at the Club.

A speedy and simple registration process with Recruitment 4 Hockey saw an advert quickly up on the website and many candidates were soon applying from South America, Europe, Pakistan , New Zealand and Australia.

One candidate  stood out as a great fit for school and Club.  Australian born  Ciaran Sanders had both an educational qualification , a Graduate Diploma in Education and a Bachelor of Science in Exercise and Sports Science gained at Edith Cowan University in W.A Australia, .  Ciaran, from Perth had been working in London as a supply teacher and played cricket in England at Pershore, Worcestershire. His hockey background  gained as a volunteer coach at Modernians equipped him well for the job in England.

Ciaran attended interviews at the school and the recruitment  process saw him deliver a trial session at the school to a group of old boys. His confident delivery and calm assured style won over students and the Head school coach. It was a tough decision for the school who interviewed 3 excellent candidates.

Ciaran is now working at the school and playing for the Mens 1st team in the Northern Premier League. He’s a big hit with everyone at the school and club and much liked and respected.

Alderley Edge Hockey Club found the relationship with Recruitment 4 Hockey to be highly beneficial and great value for money. No hesitation whatsoever in recommending them to anyone looking to recruit coaches , players or hockey professionals.
