Glasgow Clan announce Malcolm Cameron as new head coach Glasgow Clan

Glasgow Clan have announced a new head coach for the upcoming ice hockey season.

Malcolm Cameron has joined with immediate effect and will be in charge of the team when the Elite Ice Hockey League returns in September.

The 51-year-old Canadian, who spent 20 years coaching in the ECHL league in North America, will also be in charge of hockey operations at the club.

Cameron, who has Scottish ancestry, is currently fifth in all-time ECHL games coached (771) and fifth in all-time ECHL in career wins (401).

His former clubs include the Long Beach Ice Dogs, Texas Wildcatters and Florida Everblades in the USA before moving to Europe for spells with SV Kaltern in Italy and Gyergyoi Hoki Klub in Romania, who he left earlier this year.

Clan Chief Operating Officer Gareth Chalmers is delighted with Cameron’s arrival.

He said: “We’ve spent a considerable amount of time looking at almost thirty different candidates for the role.

“With the anticipated exciting new developments at the club, it was imperative we were able to appoint someone who would bring head coaching experience as well as having carried out a previous hockey operations role off the ice.

“After interviewing a number of candidates all with very impressive backgrounds and experience, we felt Malcolm was the best person for the position.

“His coaching experience and record was obviously key in the decision making, however his invaluable recruiting experience, extensive contacts and connection to Scotland were fundamental in the decision making process.

“Malcolm is extremely excited to becoming to Scotland and joining The Clan, we’re looking forward to welcoming him to Glasgow for an exciting new period for everyone associated with the club.”

The Clan, who play their home games in Braehead, are one of three Scottish teams in the UK top flight that also includes teams from Dundee, Fife, Belfast, Manchester and Cardiff.
