MMU Eagles Statement on Head Coach Jim Blinkhorn

A statement from the MMU Eagles with regards to Jim Blinkhorn stepping down as head coach.

The Eagles decided to part ways with Coach Blinkhorn due to irreconcilable differences on the management of the organisation.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Coach Blinkhorn for the help he provided during our initial 18 months, and entry into the BUAFL.

We have not lost any other members of the coaching staff and it is very much business as usual in the Eagles camp.

We are always developing and striving to create the leading University football programme in the North-West as well as nationally. We hope that we can do this by recording our first win against an established and successful Sharks team on Sunday afternoon.


  1. Having served under Jim Blinkhorn for two years I can safely say that he is a great coach and a stand-up guy. MMU have some big shoes to fill.
