Ryan Finnerty has been appointed as Manchester Storm’s new head coach.
Finnerty, who has penned a two-year deal with the club, has spent the past four seasons in charge of Braehead Clan and replaces outgoing Player/Coach Omar Pacha.
“I’m very excited to join a growing organisation with a great fan base and the opportunity to build an exciting team alongside Neil Russell,” he said.
“I look forward to the challenge ahead and working with the new ownership on achieving their goals.”
New Storm owner Gordon Greig added: “We feel this appointment will help us achieve our goal of delivering exciting and competitive hockey within a sustainable business model for the coming seasons and ensure we are able to deliver on the ice.
“Ryan is an experienced and successful bench coach, which we as an ownership think is the best way forward for this club to become even more competitive.
“We are confident of Ryan’s ability and know he can deliver results as Manchester Storm move forward.”
