Lauren Milligan has left Oaklands Wolves to become the new head coach of Barking Abbey’s WNBL Division 1 side.
The current GB Under-18s assistant took over as player-coach for the WBBL side last season before also taking charge of England Under-18s earlier in the summer.
Milligan makes the move to Barking Abbey and will also take charge of the WEABL roster having nurtured Oaklands’ academy side for the past few years.
“Lauren is Oaklands family,” said Lee Ryan, in a club statement. “She has been a phenomenal ambassador for our programme as a student, player, teammate and a coach during her tenure.
“At Oaklands, we take great pride in development and Lauren goes with our love and best wishes. A Wolf for life.”
The departure of Milligan follows the retirements of Merissa Quick and another long-time club stalwart in Lizzy Harrison, who is now part of the London Lions digital content team for the WBBL side.
