Under Nathan Hall we might not be relegated from I-League says USFC manager
Nathan Hall, a 27-year-old is currently the head coach of the football club from Sikkim, United Sikkim FC - appointed on 1 December 2012. It has not been long when the Australian was appointed at the helm for the club, which wants to see their club coming up with better performance in the I-League, as they are in the relegation zone at present.

THE HEADS of the club decided to bring in the Australian as their previous coach, Phillipe De Rider could not come up with good results. Arjun Rai, a Senior Manager of United Sikkim, told this citizen journalist , “Under the previous head coach, the team was not showing a good record. We felt that there was a need to change the coach to bring in good results.”

The new head coach has been quick to realise that the United Sikkim players lack fitness, so he has started training these players to attain good fitness, which would help them come up with better performances. “The players are very happy with the kind of training that Hall has come up with and they enjoy their training as well and feel that their game could also improve,” said Rai.

Different coaches come with different kinds of strategies, The team under Rider had an approach, which was mainly on the defensive lines, but Hall is not someone who prefers such style of football. Rai said, “Hall has a different style, where he will have an attacking style.” Under the watchful eyes of Hall, the team has lost one and drawn one, so his first victory as United Sikkim's coach is still awaited.

The team may be struggling in the relegation zone as of now, but there are huge expectations from the Australian coach, as the manager said, “Under Nathan Hall, I don't think so we are going to be relegated from the I-League.” If the club manages to survive this season of I-League, which is the target of the coach, players and officials alike, one can expect bigger things from the club under Hall, if they would plying their trade in I-League next season. Talking about relegation, Rai feels that there is a difference of just one or two points in the lower half of the table, so strong home performances can help the team climb up the standings table.

Nathan Hall is the youngest coach in the I-League, which also augers well for the club. Players can walk to the coach hesitantly and talk about where their problem lies and what can be done to correct them. The step taken by United Sikkim to bring in Hall is definitely a positive step but the players also need to respond to the idea of the coach to bring favourable results.
