Throwback to the 2010 when we welcomed 2 Argentinians and 1 Englishman to our Mens SL2 team as we pressed for promotion into SL1. Javier Telechea, Gaston Edreira and Robbie Smith
Anyone that remembers Javi’s time at the club will recall a rocket of a drag flick, aggressive mindset at the back and a love for a celebration!
Since his time at FHC Javi has been an assistant coach at professional football teams in Argentina, head coach of hockey teams in Argentina, USA and Belgium. Currently he is the Assistant Coach for the USA Women’s Field Hockey team.
In case you missed it last week the USA Women’s team secured their spot at the Paris 2024 Olympic games. As a part of his role with team USA Javier coaches from the sidelines for games and runs team trainings amongst other things.
Amazing to see our ex-FHC players going on to achieve such amazing things in hockey! Congratulations Javier!
