Tom Tsang moves to London Broncos
Coventry Bears Head Coach Tom Tsang will move to London Broncos with immediate effect to take charge of the new London Broncos Super League Reserves and assist Danny Ward and Jamie Langley in the Championship.
The club would like to wish Tom all the very best in his new role and he leaves with our blessing to take up a fantastic position that will be a step forward in his coaching career.
Coventry Bears Chief Executive Alan Robinson will take up a newly formed role leading the on-field team as Director of Rugby supported by current coaches Mark Sloan and Richard Squires and backed by a support team which includes manager Ryan Cousins, and new S&C, performance analysis and medical personnel. Other current assistant coach Alex Brown moves to support the off-field as a newly appointed Vice President of the club and Finance Director Debbie Watson will become the new CEO.
Robinson paid tribute to Tom Tsang’s contribution and outlined the new beginning that would take the club into next season.
I feel very lucky to have met and known Tom and without his involvement over the past 8 years we would not have achieved what we have in the sport on our journey into League One and transition from being an amateur club in 2015.
He has gone above and beyond in regards to his role more so than any normal coach and made a lasting difference to many Midlands based players new to the sport. I am delighted that this has clearly also been recognised by the Broncos who have also achieved so much in recent years for the sport in the south. I feel very honoured that we will have played a part of what I’m sure will be a distinguishing and long professional coaching career in the future.
Moving forward I will lead our on-field development surrounded by a vibrant coaching and support team. We will drive forward with our eyes firmly set on a new era for the Bears into next season at the Butts Park Arena.
Tom Tsang commented:
“I need to thank Alan and the Bears for their unending trust and support for the last 8 seasons, especially the past 5 in League One. Im very grateful for the opportunity I have had to lead this great club. I know the time is right for me to move on and I cant wait to get started in the Championship with London. I have no doubt that the Bears will smash the next phase of their development over the coming seasons.
Finally a massive thank you to all the Bears loyal fans, staff, partners and players I have worked with.”
