Bobby Howe has decided to transition to a new role within ECFC as Director of Coaching Emeritus. In his new role he will continue to coach and also provide invaluable mentoring to young coaches. The Board underwent a search for a new Director of Coaching this fall, and I'm pleased to report that we found an outstanding solution. It is with great pleasure that we announce John Hamel as the new Director of Coaching and David Smith as our new Technical Director. These two will begin their new appointments on December 1, 2016. John and David will continue to coach their current teams for the remainder of the 2016-17 season, and will continue as ECFC coaches in the future.
