International hockey ace joins Bishop's Stortford College
An international hockey ace has joined Bishop's Stortford College as a coach.
Kaye Goulding, who was recently appointed as the national league head coach for Chelmsford Hockey Club, played in the Premier League in the UK and Australia and Division One in the United States for teams including Doncaster, Longwood and Fremantle and YMCC.
She has been a professional player and coach for eight years, and her teaching credentials include Premier League head coach, Western Australia state coach and USA Field Hockey Futures Elite.
Kaye brings with her a wealth of talent development experience from these roles and from her Australian coaching academy, CD22 High Performance, which will be establishing a base in Stortford.
She has joined the Maze Green Road college with a remit to build on its strong hockey foundations with a view to achieving national recognition.
Kaye said: “I’m thrilled with the opportunity to work with such committed staff and pupils – it will really make a difference – as we take hockey at the college to the next stage.”
The school’s director of sport, Lyndsay Shepherd, said: “I’m incredibly pleased and excited to have someone of Kaye’s calibre join our team. She has already made a hugely positive impact and I’m confident that she’s the ideal person to help us achieve our ambitions.”
