New London coach Jermaine Coleman wants to take Broncos back to Super League

London Broncos are set to ground-share with AFC Wimbledon at Plough Lane
Coleman, who is also Jamaica’s head coach, succeeds Danny Ward, who left the Championship club in July.

News of the appointment comes a week after the club announced its decision to go part-time following a major reduction in central funding.

Broncos owner David Hughes said: “As we enter this period of change for the London Broncos, it was vital that we found the right coach to lead our squad of young players into the Betfred Championship for 2022 and I feel that we have found the ideal man in Jermaine.

“I have no doubt he will use his knowledge of the lower divisions and part-time environments to help us create a strong group of players that care passionately about playing for the London Broncos.

“We will of course give Jermaine all of the support he needs to get the club back on the right track after the disappointment of this season.”

Coleman, who has coached League 1 club Skolars since 2015, said: “I’m very excited to be given the opportunity to work with the London Broncos. We have a fantastic crop of young players who I can’t wait to start working with.

“It’s important to me that we have players who care about the club and want to see it back where we belong in Super league.

“Having players from London playing for London is important to our identity, we need to use that identity to create a winning culture within the group. We must build the club on the right foundations and we start that building project now focussing on developing our own talent and I can’t wait to get started. I’d also like to say thank you to London Skolars for the time I have had them there and wish them every success moving forward.”

  1. Good luck to him but how does he expect to win a League with a team of part time youngsters?
    Surely there must be a grizzled spine of experience to build around?
    I don’t see his period at Skolars as having been a run away success!

  2. Best of luck to Jermaine although everyone I know is pretty underwhelmed.
    And what about Tom Tsang?
    Promising young coach who steadied the ship when the broncos players had their World tipped upside down when Wardy was ‘let go’.
    Tsang’s been unceremoniously sacked and not a single mention or thanks from the club?
    With a crucial game coming up- well in reach of the playoffs, an outsider would be forgiven for thinking that the timing of this announcement was at best embarrassingly ill-judged or at worst a deliberate sabotage of the current team’s chances.
    I’ll back the broncos whoever is in charge but just feel that Tsang’s done a job for us so far and should have been given the nod for next season.
    Well, either him or Brian McDermott!😂
