20231008 Wild vs Whiltey-42

Widnes Wild Player/Coach Joey Coulter has joined National League outfit Solway Sharks on a short term deal.


Joey had this message for the Wild fans:


“I know it seems like a bit of an odd move, coaching staff playing for another team but it’s more a favour than anything else. We have a great connection with Solway, they’ve blessed us with a trio of young and very talented players, Martin and Jamie have gave me plenty of support on the coaching side of the game, so when the offer came to give something back I couldn’t decline. It’s only a short term basis, and won’t interfere with any of the scheduling at Widnes.”


“I obviously have my own selfish reasons as well, helping my hometown club and playing the game we all love with some of my best mates. Widnes still has my full focus, we work around the clock behind the scenes on improving performances but on my one night off during the week I might as well add some more hockey. A lot of the ideas I’ve been implementing over here stem from my playing days at Solway, I’m hoping to pick up some more good habits whilst I’m there and bring them back to the Wild.”
