Leigh Cowlishaw
Leigh Cowlishaw is taking over @RichmondKickers on Twitter on Monday, February 5 at 10:00am  to answer your questions about the upcoming 2018 season. Use the hashtag #AskCowlishaw and he will answer questions from how the team is looking heading into preseason, the USL and the new competition in 2018, and anything about RVA. 
Entering his 18th season at the helm, Cowlishaw has amassed an overall record of 271-147-125.  Under his guidance, the Kickers have qualified for postseason play 15 times, reaching the title match six times (2002, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009 and 2010) while earning the Regular Season Championship title on four occasions (2001, 2006, 2007 and 2013) and claiming the league crown twice (2006 and 2009).
Having also achieved significant success in the U.S. Open Cup, he won the tournament title as a player in 1995 and has since led the team to four quarterfinal appearances (2001, 2004, 2007, 2011) and a remarkable semifinal finish in 2011, ousting five Major League Soccer teams along the way.  A member of the USL Hall of Fame and 2013 USL Coach of the Year, Cowlishaw’s success on the field is matched by numerous awards off the field, helping to guide the club to five USL Organization of the Year awards (1995, 2000, 2006, 2007, 2009).
