Breaking news coming out of the Merseyside Nighthawks Senior squad this morning, as Harry Routledge has made the step up to officially become our Offensive Co-Ordinator and lead the Nighthawks offence for the 2018 season.
Routledge, who has been an intregral member of the Nighthawks set up for the last near decade, brings a wealth of experience to the role, having played for the Nighthawks, Carlstad Crusaders and GB Lions. He has also OC’d for the Swedish national team in 2015, as well as assisting the outgoing OC Joe Black at the Nighthawks since his return from Sweden. Coach Black is taking a brief sabbatical from coaching to focus on a few things outside of the Nighthawks. He will remain an integral part of the support for the new OC.
When asked about the role, Harry said ‘I am honoured to be taking up this role within the Nighthawks, although it is something I have been contributing to for the last few years. I’m looking forward to working closely with our talented roster and to continuing the good work that coach Black has done over the last few years’.
We are always on the look out for coaching staff, so if you think you may be able to assist Coach Routledge or the Nighthawks in general next season, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us via our Facebook page.
