Northern Ireland Warriors Head Coach Sheonah Forbes is delighted that Sachel will be taking on the role.
"Sachel is an excellent coach and person who I have no doubt will continue to drive the U21 programme forward in 2024. With the World Youth Cup Qualifiers in September this year, Sachel’s experience working in this age group will be paramount to the success of the group. I am really excited to develop the Technical Coach role with Lisa who will sit in a vital assistant role with the U21 group alongside Sachel, as well as delivering in the Warriors environment. Lisa’s knowledge and continual passion for the development of the Warriors is infectious and I cannot wait to continual to see her grow on the international scene. I look forward to working with the coaches with the same drive of developing our future senior Warrior athletes."
