Top Level Men’s Coach Harry Dunlop Joins Uddingston to Coach Ladies Section

Uddingston Hockey Club are delighted to announce the appointment of Harry Dunlop as their new
head coach of our ladies’ section, which consists of 4 teams who play in National League Division 2,
West District Divisions 1, 3 and 4.
Although Harry will focus majority of his efforts on the 1st team he will also work with our existing
Director of Hockey Mick Evans plus our ladies senior and junior coaches to further develop our pipeline
of talented female players coming through with the view of developing a performance environment
across all levels of our ladies section.
Harry has coached at Performance level within Scottish Hockey for over 20 years and has coached;
Scotland U16 Men, Scotland U18 Men, Scotland U18 Women, Scotland U19 Men, Scotland Senior
Women’s “B” Squad and Scotland Senior Men. During these duties Harry has been part of the Scottish
Hockey coaching team at both the Women’s World Cup & the Men’s World Cup Qualifier, as well as
countless European tournaments plus more exotic foreign competitions such as the Prime Ministers
Gold Cup, held in Dakar, Bangladesh.
He had a successful period as head coach of Western Men’s Hockey club, during which time Western
won 5 Scottish league & 4 Scottish Cup titles plus 3 Gold medals at the European Club
Championships “B” Division while gaining entry to European indoor competition and finishing 3rd in the
outdoor league in last season’s competitions.
Harry holds a GB level 4 Hockey Coaching qualification and is both a qualified Tutor and Assessor
within Scottish and English Hockey Coach Education, as well as being a qualified umpire.
Harry commented “I have coached across all levels of gents hockey for many years now and when
Uddingston approached me with this opportunity of developing their ladies’ section into a top National
League club to mirror their gents section I jumped at the chance to start this new exciting period in my
coaching career.


Director of Hockey, Mick Evans commented “as a club we have been working towards having
development plans in place of equal levels for our gents, ladies and youth sections with the simple aim
of having the best facilities, coaches and players available to all levels at our club.
Therefore, being able to entice a top level coach from gents hockey over to ladies hockey was just
simply too good an opportunity to miss for our club and once Harry’s availability and enthusiasm for
our project became known to us we made every effort to sign him up.

Andy Tennant, Head of Performance at Scottish Hockey commented ‘From a coaching perspective it is
great so see such a high-quality coach with vast experience in men's hockey accepting a fresh
challenge in the female game - and knowing Harry Dunlop he will embrace that successfully and take
Uddingston's women's programme to the next level”.
Uddingston Hockey Club are delighted with this appointment and in the coming weeks will also
announce Harry’s assistant coach / manager plus some new players who will be joining his squad for
the 2019/20 season promotion drive to National League Division one.
However, for now the club will turn its attention to their six weeks of summer sports camps held at their
grounds in Uddingston that include performance and fun hockey as well as fun tennis, football and
Nerf Wars with all very welcome to attend and book online via our website.
