Updated: 14 hours ago

After a comprehensive process, the OUBC Committee has offered the role of Men’s Head Coach to Mark Fangen-Hall and he has accepted.

Mark’s career includes roles at Cambridge University Boat Club back in 2005 and subsequently, head coach of Queen’s University Belfast. He followed his time in Northern Ireland with a similar role for Mercantile Rowing Club in Australia. He then moved to Canberra as a senior coach for Rowing Australia where he worked across both the lightweight and women’s programmes, including as coach of the Australian Women’s Eight at the Olympic Games in Rio.

Mark is currently the Coach of the Eight at Eton College and one of the coaching team for the GB U23 programme.

Anna Troup, Chair of OUBC said “I’m delighted that Mark has accepted the position as men’s head coach and look forward to him joining the Club in July. He has tremendous experience to share as we seek to reinvigorate the Club’s success. With Allan French leading our women’s programme and now, Mark leading the men’s programme our athletes have much to look forward to over the coming Boat Race campaigns”.

Mark said “It’s an honour to lead the men's coaching team at OUBC. It is a very exciting time for the Club as the Men’s, Women’s and Lightweight teams come together as a single club. I am looking forward to bringing my experiences from around the world to Oxford and plan to bring victory and enjoyment in equal measure.”
