After four seasons with Manchester Titans Women’s Team, Jonathan Homer is stepping down as Head Coach. Coach Homer was a pivotal figure in setting up the team in 2014 and has led the team to three Opal series and four Sapphire series competitions.
From starting with just 6 players in 2014, the team has grown into one of the biggest female teams in the country, competing at the highest level of the Women’s game and providing players for the Great Britain Lions. In 2016, the team took part in the inaugural 7v7 Sapphire series and have made the semi-final stage of the Premier Division – losing to the eventual winners – in both 2017 and 2018.
Coach Homer’s impact off the field also rated highly, enabling players to fulfill their potential by giving them advice and encouraging to try new positions through recognising their strengths.
His unique sense of humour will be missed on the training field and his witty game day one-liners will be hard to replicate, although, the sideline will be a much safer place with the instances of hats (clipboards/playbooks/pens) being thrown expected to fall significantly.
The position for Women’s Team Head Coach is now open for applications. Please send your expression of interest or any questions about the post to our Women’s team manager Charlie Novak firstname.lastname@example.org
