QUEEN'S APPOINTS CANNOVAN HEAD COACH OF MEN'S SOCCER TEAM

KINGSTON, Ont. - Queen's University Athletics and Recreation is pleased to welcome Carlo Cannovan who has accepted the position of Head Coach for men's soccer.

Cannovan has significant experience bringing over 10-years of playing and coaching knowledge to this part-time role. He is presently, the Technical Director for the Kingston United Soccer Club (KUSC) and also serves the Ontario Soccer Association (OSA) as a "˜Staff Coach'.

From 2001-2006, Cannovan was the Head Coach for the Ontario Girls and Boy's U14 program which represented Ontario in global competitions in Europe and South America. During his tenure in this position he saw this program medal each season at the Canadian Championships. Cannovan is also a licensed NCCP Ontario Instructor and composer of the OSA Coaching Ethics program.

"We believe Carlo will be an extremely positive boost to our program," states Janean Sergeant, Manager of Inter-University Sport for Queen's Athletics and Recreation. "He has a strong passion for the game and deep coaching knowledge both provincially and nationally. We look forward to working with him and helping him attain new heights for the men's program."

With the addition of Cannovan, the Gaels have also announced that Chris Gencarelli will not return to his position with the team, focusing his attention on obtaining his masters degree in education. Last season he guided the Gaels to a 6-4-4 record and claimed a bronze medal in the playoffs. He took on the role of head coach late last summer after former Head Coach Al MacVicar stepped down citing personal reasons.

"Chris did an incredible job under extenuating circumstances," said Sergeant. "He has a bright future ahead and we wish him nothing but the best."

Men's soccer training camp opens on August 18 with the team preparing for their season opener on September 6 against Trent University. That matchup will take place starting at 1:00pm in Richardson Stadium.
