In post for less than a week, new Under 17 Head Coach Ste Kilvington is wasting no time building his staff for the 2019 season.

As preparations continue with winter recruitment sessions, Coach Kilvington has appointed Alex Mackenzie-Grist as his Offensive Coordinator.

On his appointment, Coach Mackenzie-Grist said;

I am excited to take on this new role with the Steelers! After helping with the Under 17 programme in a couple of positions, I’m delighted to be taking on the responsibility of Offensive Coordinator. It’s a great opportunity to work with some great young athletes and bringing my enthusiasm and the Steeler mentality to some bright stars of the future. As a massive sports fan in general, being able to help the Under 17 programme to achieve the dreams we all have as young sportsman is a privilege and I can’t wait to get the season going and getting those vital wins on the offensive side of the ball!

Coach Kilvington added;

I love that Alex is the team’s new Offensive Coordinator! He brings a vast amount coaching and playing experience to team. He is extremely passionate about the game and having played alongside him, I already know what a great leader he is.

If you’re interested in joining the Under 17 coaching staff, please get in touch.
