English Coach for Ethiopian Premier League Side St. George

Ethiopia Premier League side St George have appointed Stewart Hall as their new head coach.

Ethiopia Premier League side St. George have appointed Stewart Hall as their new head coach.

The Englishman penned a two-year contract to take over the reins at the club after the dismissal of Portuguese coach Carlos Manuel Vaz Pinto.

Pinto was sacked following a string of poor results as the Horsemen lost the league title, Ethiopian Cup and are out of next year’s continental action.

“I am up for this challenge,” Hall told reporters.

Former head coach at Bangladesh outfit Said Sporting Club, Hall had a short stint in Kenya when he joined Sofapaka and later AFC Leopards.

On 20 May 2017, Hall issued a quit notice to AFC Leopards of Kenya and swiftly signed a contract with Said Sporting as their head coach, but later resigned under unclear circumstances.

On 2 August 2012, Hall was sacked by Tanzanian Premier League club Azam and immediately signed a contract with Sofapaka of Kenya on 12 September 2012, but resigned and returned to Azam after just seven weeks at the helm of Sofapaka, according to Supersport.

On 8 November 2013, Stewart Hall quit Azam. Following Stephen Constantine’s departure as manager of Rwanda in 2015, Hall applied for the vacant position.

He returned to Azam a few weeks after the ‘ice cream makers’ side failed to defend their Vodacom Premier League (VPL) title in 2014/15 season.

At one time Hall was the director of the Birmingham City FC Academy and went on to manage Saint Vincent and the Grenadines national football team and Indian club Pune FC.

In 2010 he was appointed as head coach to the Zanzibar national football team though the contract was terminated shortly afterwards for technical reasons.
