In the past I have worked on Volleyball England’s regional, divisional and national cadet programmes. I am super excited to take another step on the talent development ladder to work with national players at junior level.’ 

Steve will be working with Assistant Coaches Rachel Hutt and Alexandra Smith and Team Manager Catarina Machado. 

We would like to thank Danny Primus, previous Junior Women’s Head Coach, for his service, hard work and dedication to the talent pathway. We wish him the best of luck with his future endeavours. 

We are happy to also welcome Sam Sorsky to the England talent team, who has been appointed as an Assistant Coach for the England Cadet Girls (U17).
