​Hemel Storm have confirmed that head coach Mark Clark will return for the 2024/25 campaign.

Fresh from their recent play-off final victory, the early confirmation of the coaching set-up will be vital in allowing planning and preparations to commence ahead of next year, where Storm are already targeting further silverware.

Clark’s first year was one of success, as he steered the club through a transitional period after the departure of many key components and saw his side improve drastically as the year progressed.
