The London Broncos are delighted to announce Jermaine Coleman as their Head Coach for 2022.
Coleman, the current London Skolars and Jamaica Rugby League Head Coach impressed the Club during discussions with his attention to detail in preparation, his knowledge of the players across all levels of Rugby League in the South East and his hugely positive attitude and desire to build a winning culture and environment with an emphasis on high standards.
London Broncos owner David Hughes was delighted to welcome Coleman to the Club saying “As we enter this period of change for the London Broncos it was vital that we found the right coach to lead our squad of young players into the Betfred Championship for 2022 and I feel that we have found the ideal man in Jermaine.”
“He interviewed outstandingly and has left myself and Jason with no doubt he will use his knowledge of the lower divisions and part time environments to help us create a strong group of players that care passionately about playing for the London Broncos. We will of course give Jermaine all of the support he needs to get the club back on the right track after the disappointment of this season.”
CEO Jason Loubser added “I have spoken to Jermaine several times and it became apparent very early in these discussions that he lives and breathes Rugby League and has a vast knowledge of players across the sport both Professional and Amateur as well as overseas. We need this type of character to help us source the very best part time players out there and ensure they fit with the standards in our environment and want to be at the London Broncos to push this club forward on and off the field.”
Speaking to the club for the first time since his appointment Jermaine told us “I’m very excited to be given the opportunity to work with the London Broncos. We have a fantastic crop of young players who I can’t wait to start working with.”
He added “It’s important to me that we have players who care about the club and want to see it back where we belong in Super league.”
“Having players from London playing for London is important to our identity, we need to use that identity to create a winning culture within the group. We must build the club on the right foundations and we start that building project now focussing on developing our own talent and I can’t wait to get started. I’d also like to say thank you to London Skolars for the time I have had them there and wish them every success moving forward.”
We will bring supporters an in depth interview with Jermaine once his duties with London Skolars are completed and of course thank Adrian, Colin and the Skolars for their understanding and look forward to cementing a strong relationship with the Skolars in 2022 and beyond.
