How long have you been coaching?

4 years


Former player for club and county level, now getting back into to game by coaching my sons as they start their rugby journey.

I’m a former player from juniors to seniors for both Teignmouth, Newton Abbot and at County level before age meant I had to hang up my playing boots.
I’ve now turned my energy to coaching my boys 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 cant beat them, then join them” and is enjoying her rugby at school and is interested in starting with the u13 girls which is allowing my children to experience the great values about this game we all love.
I’ve particularly enjoyed being reuniting with former team mates and making new friendship and connections within the club and across sides in the local area
