Breaking news out of Nottingham as U19s Head Coach George Lees has stepped down from his position with immediate effect. Coach Sean Endicott will fill in as HC for the rest of the season, and perhaps beyond!
In a statement, Lees had this to say:
“It is with a heavy heart, I am stepping down as the Nottingham Caesars Juniors Head Coach, with immediate effect.
This is due to a number of issues both internally and externally. Along with time constraints in my personal life.
This was not a decision I have taken lightly but when a voluntary role is causing more stress than your job it is time to step away.
I have been involved with the club for nine years and has been a big part of my life during that time. I am proud of every single person that I have coaches a long the way and have made some great friends in the process. Robbie Jones, Tom Henley, Alex Mclachlan and Mot Harvy to name but a few!
I’m pleased to announce that Sean Endicott will be taking on the role moving forward. A very talented young man who has the full support of the Junior coaching staff! There is a lot of potential within the current junior squad and I know Sean will work hard to help that talent develop.
I wish everyone at the Caesars Organisation the very best moving forward. I hope to see you all again soon.”
It will be interesting to see how the Caesars Juniors react to losing such a respected, and successful, young Coach. In his four years at the club, the 24-year-old Lees accumulated a 13-7-1 regular season record, whilst leading his team to two National Plate Finals.
We here at DC wish Coach Lees all the best in his next endeavour, and hope he gets back into the British game sooner rather than later!
