Coached Newbury Ladies for 5 years as Assistant then Head Coach leading them to 3 Berkshire Cups and promotion from National Challenge 1 South East West to Championship 2 South East West.

Also coached with Berkshire Ladies where we reached the semis of the County Cup,Berkshire U18 girls for 2 years, Berkshire boys age groups and DPP for London Irish. In addition to this I have coached for J Heald coaching for 6 years as well as for Lions Sports Academy and for the London Irish Community Team.

Why I love coaching – It’s extremely rewarding when you get to know a player and see them fulfill their potential.

Best Coaching Moment – leading Park House U18 girls to a South West 7’s competition win and then assessing when two of them were selected for South West England. Securing a joint tie and gaining promotion with Newbury Ladies.

I coached at Henley Hawks Women for a season and am now Assistant Coach at Richmond RFC Ladies.
