Contact:  rugby@narfc.co.uk



Simon is a proactive volunteer at The Club and works closely with Mike Saxton, the Director of Rugby. Simon Morrell, the Head Coach, and Phil Burford, the Ladies Development Manager.

“I am a former player from juniors to seniors for both Teignmouth, Newton Abbot. I also played at county level before my age meant I had to hang up my playing boots.

I’ve now turned my energy to coaching my boy’s age groups and helping grow the junior section for the long term benefit of the club through my role as Junior Development of Rugby Manager.

My youngest Tommy is in the u6/5’s, Billy is in the u10’s and my daughter Ellie is now at the point of “if you can’t beat them, then join them” and is enjoying her rugby at school and is interested in starting with the u13 girls which are allowing my children to experience the great values about this game we all love.

I’ve particularly enjoyed reuniting with former teammates and making new friendships and connections within the club and across sides in the local area.”
