Slough Jets logo Slough Jets team management would like to announce that current Assistant Coach and family man Craig Moran will step up to the position of Head Coach for the Slough Jets. Craig has been part of the Slough hockey scene since learning to skate as a child. He has played for Slough Juniors at every age level before moving into the English National League (now NIHL). Work and time commitments at the time prevented Craig from taking his playing career higher.

In addition Craig was a huge part of the forming management of recreational team Slough Satans in an effort to make learning the game and entry to playing easier for previously non-playing adults.

Craig joined the Slough Jets coaching set up as Assistant Coach in the 2005/06 season and enjoyed his first taste of senior coaching success as Assistant Coach at the 2008/09 English Premier Ice Hockey League Play-offs where alongside Head Coach Steve Moria the duo guided the Jets to success. Following a spell as Assistant Coach with Basingstoke Bison Craig was back behind the bench with the Slough Jets when he and Peter Russell lifted the Premier Cup on home ice and a year later he and Doug Sheppard lifted the Play-off trophy again at Coventry.

Craig Moran said of his new appointment; “I’m honoured to be asked to take the reigns and I’d like to thank Zoran and Ghislaine for the opportunity and their faith in me. My first task obviously is to try and rebuild the team following the recent player departures. After losing so many top British players mid-season it is never going to be easy to replace them, I have spoke to a number of players already and hope to have signatures soon enabling me to announce some new blood joining the team.”

He continued; “I will work hard and give 100% to try and bring success to Slough once again, carrying on from the positive form we have generated this season. We know we have missed out on the cup this year but we are still focussing on the play-offs. I’d like to thank the players that have stayed with me and I will work hard for them, the owners and the supporters to strive for success on the ice and to build solid foundations for the club to move forward from again.”
