Uddingston Further Strengthen their Ladies Coaching Team with Appointment of Adam McInnes

Further to the announcement of Harry Dunlop as the new Head Coach of Uddingston Ladies, the club is
delighted to announce the appointment of Glasgow Sports Council Young Coach of the Year Adam McInnes
as Assistant Coach / Manager of the Uddingston Ladies 1st XI.


Adam had a highly successful spell as Head Coach of Glasgow University Women’s Hockey Club
(GUWHC) (2016-2018), during which time he coached the club to the Scottish National Division Two title
and promotion to National Division One for the first time in the club’s history.


He also oversaw GUWHC winning Scottish BUCS 1A, the top university league in Scotland, for the first time
ever. Adam was the youngest National League Head Coach in Scotland throughout his time with GUWHC.
Adam has been the Head Coach of the Scottish Grand Masters International Squad since 2018 and in June
of this year coached the squad to the bronze medal position at the 2019 Grand Masters European Cup
in Brasschaat, Belgium. This was the highest finish that Scotland has ever secured at this age-group at
European level and was a result that saw Scotland finish significantly higher than their pre-tournament
ranking.


Adam Commented, “I am delighted to be joining the Ladies coaching team at Uddingston. When the
opportunity to work alongside Harry Dunlop at such an ambitious club was offered to me, I couldn’t refuse.
I am excited about the prospect of helping this group of players to realise their significant potential and to
secure Division One status for the club. I can’t wait to get started.”


Head Ladies Coach, Harry Dunlop commented, “I am delighted to have appointed an assistant coach of
such a high calibre. Adam is, in my opinion, destined to be one of our top coaches at the Senior level
and is already well on the way to achieving this. More importantly, Adam won National League 2
previously which is our current objective for Uddingston Ladies, so brings with him a large amount of
hugely valuable and very current knowledge.


Director of Hockey, Mick Evans commented “this is yet another great appointment for our ladies’ section
and I greatly look forward to working with both Harry and Adam as it will not only improve our coaching
team on the ladies’ side but also strengthen the overall team supporting our great young pool of talent
coming through.


Uddingston Hockey Club are delighted with this appointment and in the coming weeks will also announce
some new players who will be joining their ladies squad for the 2019/20 season promotion drive to
National League Division one as well as further facility improvements focused on making the spectator
experience better for all.
