Dave Fielder unveiled as Telford Tigers 2 coach. Telford Tigers are pleased to announce that Dave ‘Ces’ Fielder will be joining them as Tigers 2 Coach for the 2019/20 season. A well-known figure throughout the Ice Hockey world, Dave joins the Club with immediate effect and is ready to get started building the team for the forthcoming season.
Dave commented “I’m looking forward to working with the Tigers 2 team, I’ve coached most of these lads at junior level and watched them improve year on year. I’m also looking forward to working with some of the up and coming juniors – for me it’s about development of all players for the good of Telford.
I’ve had a couple of years off Ice Hockey to spend more time with my family, although I have still helped out with the RAF team in Telford. After speaking to my wife and family we agreed it was time to get back on the horse!
I’m looking forward to working with Tom again too helping coach players to move up to Tigers 1. Tigers 2 have a big reputation, and with the foundations laid by Callum, Mike and Martin we will be pushing hard this coming season for league and playoff success.
I can’t wait to meet up with the players and finally get the season started!”
Tom Watkins, Head Coach and General Manager, is delighted to welcome Dave on-board commenting; “I’m really pleased we have now finalised the coaching position for the D2 team. To have a dedicated guy solely focused on coaching and player development is very important. Dave Fielder is one of the most passionate ice hockey people in Telford and I’m sure he will expect the same passion and commitment from his team.”
Tigers 2 player recruitment details will be published shortly – so watch this space if you are interested, or contact Dave directly in the meantime.
