New hockey coach upbeat
NEW head coach of the women’s national hockey team Donovan Smith believes they will give a good account of themselves at next month’s Indoor Pan American Cup in Guyana.
The former national player told NATION SPORT that since taking over the team after being appointed by the Barbados Hockey Federation four weeks ago in preparation for the October 16 to 21 tournament, the women have been performing quite well.
“It has been a learning curve for both players and management because the team is new to the indoor style of play but I must say they are working hard, they are working well and they are having fun,” Smith said.
“I am happy with the progress these ladies have been making. I can guarantee they will give a credible performance when they get to Guyana,” he said. (RG)
