Wolverines Appoint New Head Coach
The Lancashire Wolverines are pleased to announce their new Head Coach, former player – Alex Dunn.
Lex has a long history with the Wolverines, beginning his football career with their Junior team at the age of 15. He received National team calls up to both the GB Lions junior team, and also captained Team England junior team.
Lex graduated through to the Senior team, and was an integral part of the teams that progressed from ‘affiliate team’ through to becoming a ‘Premiership Club’.
After a few years away to focus on raising a family – we would like to welcome Lex back to his ‘Sunday Family’.
I am delighted that the club has appointed Alex Dunn as our new HC. Lex brings a fresh vision to the club and the plans Lex has for us will only move us forward. I have been around the club for a while now and I am very excited for the club’s future with Lex at the helm.
Chairman – John Halliwell
