Meet our Coaches


Ieuan Davies (Under 15's)​

I'm Ieuan and I am the Coach & Fixtures manager of the Junior section at Cardiff & Met HC. I will be leading the juniors programme and lead coach of Under 15's coach as we begin our introductory season into the South Wales Junior leagues. My background at Cardiff Metropolitan comes from studying undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Sports Coaching, while representing the BUCS first team and captaining the club second team. Away from Cardiff & Met I am heavily involved with the Hockey Wales junior performance programmes, head coaching the South Central 360 centre and team coach with the Under 18's National Boys Team.  

Ben Holdaway (Under 13's)

I'm a Sports Coaching student at the University. Hockey is a sport that both my parents played from a young age so thankfully I was encouraged to do the same. I got into coaching through helping out my Dad with the U16s section of the club I played for before life in Cardiff. I enjoyed helping the younger players of the club grow, which eventually led to my choice of degree. My coaching philosophy has grown from the positive experiences I have had when playing hockey as I want all who participate to enjoy the sport as much as I did and continue to do. I have ambitions of coaching abroad and growing the game. Looking forward to another season of coaching and playing hockey in Cardiff.


Anna Cherrington (Under 11's)

My name is Anna Cherrington, I'm 20 years old and study Sport and Exercise Science. I play a high standard of hockey in the university's first team, surrounded by competitive and driven individuals. I play for the fun and enjoyment as well as to give me some time out from my studies. I coach because seeing an individual or a team work through a problem and improve their game gives me an immense sense of pride. I am a firm believer that a group of friends make the most effective and successful teams. To support my coaching I have both my level 2 hockey and cricket coaching qualifications. 


Oli Lum (Under 9's)

I am currently a 3rd year Sport Coaching student with a Level 1 Award in Coaching Hockey. I have represented my Club, County and University as a player and coupling my own playing and coaching experiences has given me the desire to coach hockey at all levels. My hockey role model is Fergus Kavanagh of Australia, who I was lucky enough to meet at the Olympic Games in London.
