Welcome to our new Assistant Coach Joe Middleton

Coach.Ben Negus

The COPS Coaching and Executive team would like you to join us in welcoming our new full-time Assistant Coach, Joe Middleton, to our deck-side.

Joe joins us from Tynemouth SC where he was their Performance Coach. Joe was the outstanding candidate of many excellent candidates to apply for this role. He is also a former national level swimmer with Middlesbrough SC and has excellent swimming & coaching experience to add to our team. Joe will work directly with Junior Performance, Development and Competitive squads and over-see management of Mini Squads.

Speaking to Joe about the move to COPS, he said, 'I'm absolutely delighted to become part of this exciting team. I see how well COPS performs on a national level and its ability to perform as a team in the National Arena Swimming League, but also produce individual talent. I am really excited to be part of the team and can't wait to start working with the hard-working talent in Peterborough and its surrounding areas".

Joe will start officially on Monday 10th May 2021 and will begin on deck with Development squads on Monday evening. 

We are sure you will be as excited as the Coaching team and Executive Committee to meet and see what Joe brings to our team. We ask members to reserve questions for Joe until the week of the 17th May to allow him time to settle in to the role.
