Princeton field hockey head coach Kristen Holmes-Winn has announced the addition of David Williamson to her staff for the upcoming 2013 campaign. Williamson will serve as the Tigers’ goalkeeping coach and replaces Nate Franks ’07 who took a fulltime role with USA Field Hockey.

"I am thrilled to welcome David into the Princeton field hockey family,” said Holmes-Winn. “With David we have a true specialist in the area of goalkeeping. His passion is tangible and his overall knowledge for the game is superior. I know David will make an instant impact in all areas of the program. We are truly honored to have him on board."

Williamson, a 2002 graduate of the University of Ulster, has extensive experience coaching both stateside and internationally. He previously was an assistant at Monmouth from 2008-12, helping the team earn votes in the NFHCA poll towards a national ranking for the first time in program history. Previously he was at Kent State from 2002-05, where the team won two regular season conference championships, a conference tournament, made an NCAA tournament appearance and earned its highest program ranking at No. 7.

He also has worked with the Irish Hockey and U.S. Field Hockey associations, along with serving as the goalkeeping coach for numerous club and academy teams.

Williamson boasts a successful playing resume, winning Club Player of the Year in 2001 and 2002 with Newry Olympic Hockey Club, a national title in 2005 and 2006 with Lisnagarvey Hockey Club and most recently capturing the Lenister League title in 2013 with Pembroke Wanders Hockey Club.
