Craig Wilson announced as Men’s Head Coach
Melville Hockey Club would like to announce the appointment of Craig Wilson as the new Head Coach of the Men’s Top Squad for the 2018 season.
Craig is a product of Melville having played all his junior hockey at the club, and his father, the late Ron Wilson, remains a club legend.
Craig brings a wealth of coaching experience at club, state and national level. He led Victoria Park to victory in the 2012 Premier League Grand Final, and coached the State’s U21 Men to a silver medal in 2014.
Craig has also been part of the Off-Field Teams for both the WA Thundersticks and the Kookaburras in recent years.
Now reunited with Melville, Craig’s aim is to return to the upper echelon of the Premier League.
“I’m looking forward to continuing the great work of people in the past at Melville Hockey Club and sparking a surge of bigger and better things in the future,” he said.
Club President Gary Bowater said he was happy to have secured Craig as Head Coach given his experience and past success.
“I am very pleased with Craig’s appointment. His experience, energy and history are great for the club and a testimony to Craig. We welcome him as a coach and returning member,” he said.
The appointment follows Russell Lee’s decision to step down due to work commitments. The Club would like to thank Russell for his outstanding commitment as Head Coach for the past three seasons, which included leading the club to its first Premier League Grand Final in 2016.
