Muckross Hockey Club are delighted to announce the appointment of Simon Pearson as 1st XI Head Coach and Anna O’Flanagan as Assistant Coach/Player for the 2019/2020 season.
After his debut season at Muckross, where he steered the 2nd XI to both the League and Cup titles, Simon Pearson joined William & Mary Field Hockey as an Assistant Coach. On his return to Ireland, he worked with the Muckross 1st 1XI squad as Assistant Coach to Sarah Scott for the latter half of the 2018/2019 season.
Having played a key role in the team retaining their spot in what was their debut EYHL season, the Club are delighted Pearson will be assuming the mantle of MHC Head Coach for the upcoming season.
Pearson will be instrumental in achieving the team’s goals, as well as identifying and developing breakthrough talent from Muckross’ Junior section into the club’s 1s XI. He will be working closely with Anna O’Flanagan, who is assuming the role of Assistant Coach/Player within the squad.
The Club are delighted in welcoming Anna back to her school grounds of Muckross Park College as she joins the Muckross Magic. With 180 international caps to her name, Anna will be utilizing her vast experience and world class skills to further develop this young, talented and ambitious team.
From all of us in Muckross, we wish you the very best with your new roles!
