Horton steps up to lead the Bears CLS

The club is happy to announce the recruitment of Lloyd Horton to the Coventry Bears senior coaching team. Lloyd will take over the reigns of Head Coach of Conference League South from Jim Carter who has stepped back from coaching due to work and family commitments.

Lloyd has been successfully involved with Leamington Royals since 2011 as a player but it is in his last 3 seasons as a coach that the club have enjoyed their most successful period of on field success. During his tenure the Leamington side have yet to finish outside the top 4 following promotion to the Midlands Premier division in 2013 and have only suffered one defeat at their Acre Close home.

Horton will be working closely with the other senior coaches and Tom Tsang to develop new players through playing for the Bears in Conference League South.

Lloyd commented; "I am really looked forward to getting involved, I have been a keen supporter of what the Bears are doing and attended games last year at the BPA, it's a really exciting prospect to develop new players towards playing in League One and I will look to bring my own style to keeping players motivated and challenged in this environment"
