Budzie set for return to Telford

Telford Tigers NIHL have signed local favourite Daniel ‘Budzie’ Mackriel as the club’s new head coach.

The former English Premier League star will take the reigns ahead of the new Moralee Conference season in September.

Mackriel guided Blackburn Hawks to the NIHL league title and play-off title last season, following a 19-year senior playing career.

Tigers NIHL owner, Mike Washburn, said: “You have to start right from the outset with the best quality coaching team that you can possibly get, and Budzie has that in spades.

“Together with an impeccable track record of success at this level, his credentials speak for themselves. I am thrilled that I will be working with him again to build our team and club.”

The 35-year old, who trained as a junior in Telford, has already begun his recruitment campaign, with an assistant coach due to be announced shortly.

Any players that are interested in joining Telford should email budzie19@hotmail.co.uk as soon as possible.
