The Kent Exiles are pleased to announce several additions to their coaching staff for 2018, alongside all last year’s coaches returning, as Head Coach John Moore looks to get the most out of his squad in a bid to go further than last year’s semi-final appearance.

Derrick Bennett will take his first steps on the coaching ladder joining as an Offensive Assistant Coach after retiring from playing. Derrick had a successful playing career including a stint at the Exiles and playing in the Belgian league.

The final addition is Zac Ritchie who now takes full time responsibility for Quarterbacks after retiring from playing. Zac has been coaching the clubs QB’s for several years, running an annual QB camp for all age groups to ensure some future stars are coming through the ranks.

On announcing the coaching team to the 2018 squad Head Coach John Moore said “I'm really excited by the line-up of coaches we have put together.  The quality and experience they bring will help and challenge the players to get to the next level.
