Wingham Ironmen Announce Coaching Staff

The Wingham Ironmen are pleased to announce the signing of their 2013/14 Coaching Staff.
 

Louie Livingston will return to the Ironmen Bench to assume the Head Coach Position with the organization. Over the years Louie has held a variety of positions with the organization but is now returning to his true passion, coaching.  In addition to his work with the Ironmen Louie has also worked with the Listowel Cyclones as an assistant Coach and Scout.
 

Assisting Louie on the bench this season will be veteran Bill Brown and new comer Joel Riley.
 

Bill Brown is no stranger to the Ironmen organization as he was the Head Coach for a few seasons in the early 90's.  Following his work with the Ironmen, Brown went on to Coach in the GOJHL with the Owen Sound Greys where he was named the “Coach of the Year”.   He followed that up with successfully coaching the Exeter Hawks to the OHA Jr D Championship.  Most recently Bill was a scout with the OHL Windsor Spitfires and during his time with them he won two memorial cups.  Bill’s vast hockey knowledge and intelligence will be an asset to the organization.

New to the team as a Coach, but not as a player, Joel Riley will be making his debut as an Ironmen assistant coach this season.  Joel grew up in Wingham and was a significant player for the Ironmen teams that went to the OHA Junior C Championship Final and Semi Final in 2002 and 2003.  During the past few seasons Joel has been developing as a coach in the Wingham Minor Hockey system.  Last season Joel was the Head Coach of the Wingham Midget team that advanced to the All Ontario Semi Finals.  Joel’s enthusiasm and passion for the game will be evident every minute he is at the rink.

In addition to the Coach signings the Ironmen are also pleased to announce the appointment of Bill Brophy as President for the organization.  Bill brings a wealth of knowledge and innovative ideas that will undoubtedly help the organization achieve their goal of once again being a Championship Team.

The Wingham Ironmen Training Camp begins on August 23 and 24 in Listowel.  Players interested in trying out for the team should contact General Manager, Rob Harrison at wingham.ironmen@gmail.com.

The OHA Junior C player of the year for 2011-12 captained the Ironmen to a solid-fourth place finish and the team challenged for third all year.

THREE AWARDS

The Wingham Ironmen players, executive and fans are extremely proud of Aaron's accomplishments.  He is a great player and leader.  Congratulations on these significant Awards.
