Rob Mitchell, our specialist Goalkeeper coach, joined the coaching team in 2019. Rob started playing in goal at school when he was 12 and played senior club hockey from the age of 15. He represented his county and region in his late teens, and his university for three years. He also captained the 1st XI at his previous club for two seasons. Rob has played for all of ESM’s teams and is very supportive of the younger players and particularly keepers, stepping up to adult hockey.
