Andy T 2

The Mens 1st XI are delighted to have re-appointed Andy Taylor as 1st XI National League Manager for the 2013/14 season. 

Andy has been away from the club for over 8 years spreading his wings in a coaching capacity over at Newark and more recently leading Derby Asterdale Ladies for 6 seasons with great success including games against England Masters, Wales Masters and attaining a remarkable 1-1 draw against the Aussie Masters.


Andy commented:

“Being asked to come back is very flattering and an opportunity I could not turn down.  The chance to return to my true home in Hockey and to work alongside the quality of coaching staff and players within the club is just fantastic.

I just can’t wait to put on that famous Belper Jacket again and get stuck in to what promises to be an exciting season ahead.

Get the Guinness in, Big Red’s Home.”


I’m sure you will all join me in welcoming the big man back into the fold, his enthusiasm and commitment to the club is legendary and this is a massive acquisition to the management team and the whole of the 1st XI squad, you never know on his Saturdays off we may even persuade him to pick up a stick again to rattle those goals in, joining his old cohorts in Roger Carter and Paul Greensmith to name but a couple…

Welcome back buddy its going to be a great season.

Mark Lamb

Vice Chairman
