Byrne takes on the role after cutting his teeth last year as assistant to Arul Anthoni at Glenanne Park, frequently taking over first team affairs on match day as the Malaysian head coach's dual role with Old Alex saw him unable to run the sideline.
He also takes on the role of youth academy coach at the club - a youth development programme now in its third year.
Mick McGuinness will continue on as the women's first team coach with the aim of building yet further on last season's promotion and cup success while Connor Gillett - himself a graduate of the club's youth system - takes on the role of Youth's Head Coach in which there are currently over 150 players.
Speaking about the appointments, club president Tom Hipwell was delighted with the new-look coaching team in place: "I am very excited to announce these appointments as it shows our intent to become a top tier hockey club and I would like to wish all our coaches every success in the season ahead.
"We are very confident that this formidable coaching team will continue to build on the development and successes of the club."
