Joe Grima steps down as London Broncos coach

Joe Grima has decided to step down as coach of London Broncos due to family circumstances.

Assistant coach Andrew Henderson will now take charge on an iterim basis, while the club considers its options.

Grima was appointed as London coach in May 2014, taking over from Tony Rea.

“Due to some personal family circumstances out of my control I have decided to step down as head coach,” he said.

“I must focus 100 per cent on these personal issues at hand. It would not be fair on staff, our club, the players and supporters if I could not plan and lead our club to my full capacity.

“While it is sad particularly after making so many positive changes to our club along with David Hughes, Jason Loubser and my amazing staff, my family has to come first.

“My decision was made entirely by my wife and I, which David Hughes has generously accepted.”

London Broncos Chairman David Hughes added: “We are really sorry to see Joey go, we made every effort to persuade Joey to stay on but he had made his mind up over the past month and we respect his decision.”
