St Lawrence College are delighted to announce the appointment of Alastair Brogdon as their new Elite Performance Director. Alastair will not only look to further enhance the College’s reputation as one of the top hockey schools in the country, but also work with top performers across all sports to guide them on their path to maintaining a performance lifestyle. Alongside this role, he will also be working with Canterbury Hockey Club to maintain and develop the link between the College and the club.
Alastair competed on the international hockey stage for 8 years, representing England & Great Britain over 150 times between 2008-2016.
The highlights of Alastair’s international career were winning European Gold (2009), Commonwealth Games Bronze (2014) and being part of Team GB’s most successful Olympic team at the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro.
Alastair’s domestic club career also saw him play and achieve success throughout Europe with HC Rotterdam, Waterloo Ducks and Wimbledon HC – winning national league titles in Belgium, and also in England whilst he was captain.
Since retiring from international and club hockey, Alastair has coached and supported the development of both junior and senior hockey at Wimbledon HC.
Alastair is studying and has a passion for ‘Athlete Performance Lifestyle’, something that he hopes to develop with the pupils at St Lawrence College.
‘I am really looking forward to beginning the role as St Lawrence College Elite Performance Director. It’s a fantastic opportunity and environment for me to be able to support, nurture and develop pupils in pursuit of their individual and team aspirations.’
Head of College Mr Barney Durrant said:
‘We are delighted to be welcoming Alastair Brogdon to the St Lawrence College family as our new Elite Performance Director. With his Olympic, international and national experience he has so much to offer our elite sportspeople and will be integral in the development not only of technical skill, but also of the mentality, approach and holistic development that our young people need to thrive at the highest sporting levels.’
