With interest and participation in American Football growing across the United Kingdom, the Tamworth Phoenix are taking steps to develop opportunities to experience and participate in the sport. Preparations for the upcoming season have already seen a number of exciting developments for the programme.
The Phoenix is pleased to announce the appointment of Mike Fearn to the position of U17 head coach. After former head coach Andy Garratt stepped down at the end of 2015 the Phoenix committee knew there were big shoes to fill.
With six years of coaching under his belt and 3 years with the U17 Phoenix coach Fearn has been with former HC coach Garratt from the start. Originally taking on the role of QB coach, Fearn quickly rose through the ranks to become the U17 OC.
The Phoenix have always been very proud of the many strong relationships they have with university teams across the Midlands and it was great to see so many of their former and current players inducted into the British Student American Football Hall of Fame.
