Chesterfield Hockey Club

1st Team Manager and Captain

Summer Social Hockey

Following the annual general meeting on the 13th April Chesterfield Hockey Club have appointed Ben Lamb as the new Men’s 1st XI Coach for the forthcoming season. After returning to the club as a player 3 years ago, Lamb takes over coaching duties from John Nash, who will now be able to focus solely on youth development along with the new Junior Hockey Co-ordinator Paul Speed. Nash said: “I’m delighted to be passing the reigns over to Ben. The first team is in good hands and I can now concentrate on developing some of the promising young players we have at the club along with Paul”

Lamb returns to coaching after a two year absence and is excited about the challenges ahead. “It is great to be back coaching the game I love and at a club I have strong ties with” commented Lamb. “The guys at Chesterfield are a good bunch of lads and I’m hoping I can improve the fortunes on the field with a new approach”. Lamb will be hoping this change of direction can push the club forward. Last season saw Chesterfield relegated from Midlands 1 but Lamb is optimistic about the future. “I need the guys to embrace change and be willing to buy into a new philosophy”. “Although we were relegated, we were competitive in almost all the matches. If we can add a little more quality to our play, then we’ll bounce back”. Lamb will be hoping the experience that he gained whilst coaching at Belper will assist him in his new role. “I had a great time at Belper, it’s a great club. I was lucky enough to coach in the national league for a number of seasons and work with Craig Keegan whilst Belper were in the Premier Division”. “My experiences gained at Belper will be invaluable as I restart coaching again” added Lamb.

Another new, but familiar, face to the 1st XI set up will be new 1st XI Captain Christian Battye. Having started at the club as a youngster Battye has held numerous roles within the club and will now take over from Adam Bointon, who steps down after several years at the helm.

Pre-season training starts for the 1st XI squad on the 1st July, with warm up games organised during the lead up to what should be an exciting league campaign.Battye said: “I’m excited about what this club can achieve. We have some really talented players in the squad that are capable of playing at a higher level if we are willing to put the work in”.
