Braehead Clan have confirmed that they have parted company with head coach John Tripp.
The Clan thanked John for his contribution since joining the club from German DEL2 outfit Eispiraten Crimmitshau last summer.
Hockey & Operations Director Gareth Chalmers commented: “John leaves the club on very good terms and with our utmost respect, we thank him for all his hard work and commitment over the past ten months. We wish, his wife Taryn, son Ben and daughter Helena all the very best in their future.
“It has been bitterly disappointing for this organisation to finish ninth in the league, miss out on the playoffs and not retain the Gardiner Conference title. Our aspirations are the Clan to be competing for silverware and not battling for a playoff spot.”
The club will now focus on ensuring that we appoint a new Head Coach promptly that will allow us to start building a competitive and exciting team for the 2018/19 season.
