Sandwell Under New Stewardship

Sandwell Under New Stewardship

As the dust settles on the ’17 season, all three branches of the club came together for the AGM (Annual General Meeting).

Ross Barrow has stepped down from the position of Head Coach for the Adult team; citing that he feels he cannot give the necessary time the club deserves. He will be staying at the club, just in a lower capacity. We thank Ross for all of his hard work and commitment this past season, guiding the Steelers to a 7-3 season which culminated in playoff football.

Parm Sandhu has also stepped down as the Adult Team GM. We would also like to thank Parm for all the time he committed this season to helping the club run as smoothly as possible.

The Sandwell Steelers Committee consists of seven positions, all of these positions are voted for annually, bar the position of Chairman which is biannually. This year each position only had one nominee, and the nominees are as follows:

Chairman: Rob Amor.

Vice-Chairman: Anthony Green.

Treasurer: Peter Roden.

Secretary: Fiona Mackenzie-Grist.

Adult GM: Stuart Andrew.

Women’s GM: Samantha Wilson.

Youth GM: Inderjit Pharwaha.

As each position went uncontested, all members above were voted in.

With Rob Amor elected as the club’s new chairman we got a quick word from him following his election:

‘Having spent a year away from football, I got the itch to get back involved having helped Double Coverage and Onside Productions live stream the Britbowl finals. A number of teams had enquired as to whether I’d be interested in getting back involved, and having committed to standing for a position with the Steelers, I was delighted when the club’s members voted me in as Chairman at the recent AGM. Sandwell have demonstrably grown over the last few years as a club; with adult, youth and women’s programmes improving year-on-year. The brief conversations I’ve had with people across the various programmes have filled me with a great deal of excitement as to what the future holds and the heights to which we can take this club forward together’. #SteelerFamilia

The whole Steeler’s organisation can’t wait to see the fruits of Rob’s labor.
