Will Maynard returns to coach the Charnwood College Riders

Will Maynard has joined the coaching staff at Charnwood College Riders ahead of the next academic year to work with the boys academy players.


Maynard, a Leicester native joined the Leicester Riders programme to attend Charnwood College, seven seasons ago to study and play as an academy player.


Following a short stint in the US, Maynard returned to Loughborough College to play with the Loughborough Student Riders, debuting for the Riders as a student and achieving Patrons Cup and BUCS Championship success in his final year before joining Surrey Scorchers for the 2016/17 BBL season.


Maynard began to branch into coaching in his final year of studies, assisting with the EABL side when time allowed. He will now re-join Coach Merrington at Charnwood College to work with the next generation of Riders players.


Will Maynard said: “I am really excited about the opportunity of joining the Riders Coaching team as I have been part of the club for seven years, playing throughout the pathway.


“I am looking forward to working hard to develop the next generation of players and giving back my knowledge to them. It is fantastic for me to be going back to Charnwood College because this is where the journey began for me and I really believe this is one of the best programmes in the country.”


Russell Levenston, Managing Director for the Leicester Riders is pleased with the appointment of Coach Maynard. He said: “Will was one of the first AASE students to join the programme seven years ago and I am delighted that he is now joining the programme as a coach. He has great knowledge of our programme and has so much to give back to the next generation.


“He is joining an experienced coaching team and I believe that will provide the support for him to be really successful as a coach here at the Leicester Riders.”
