Alan takes over from James Robinson, who first proposed the role and has worked really hard over the last year to kick start the Universities program back to life!
On behalf of everyone at UKFF a big thank you to James, whose vision & aspirations for Floorball & its place in the university sports community has helped us get started on the road to BUCS affiliation. Alan joins us from York University, and some of you may have met him already at events which the team have hosted.
Here is his introduction!
I have been playing floorball since my second year at Uni, where I co-founded the University of York Floorball Club (4 years ago). I have been an active committee member since and understand the struggles that uni clubs go through. From having to compete with other sports for court time to losing those key players every year as they graduate/move away, amongst many other difficulties that a floorball club unfortunately faces.
I have experience with managing a new club and have seen the York club grow and flourish into a larger club than we ever thought possible back when we founded it in 2015, and I want to help more clubs to develop and create a better university floorball experience for all.
