On behalf of Thames Valley Rugby Union, I am extremely pleased to announce we have completed the process of recruitment for our new Heartland Head Coach.

There were some outstanding applicants and the process to shortlist was very tough, thank you to all those who applied. On this occasion we are very privileged to have had our internal assistant coaching team and management from the previous few years, apply and be successful in attaining the position of Head Coach and coaching team.

Congratulations to Joe Murray and David Harrison who will jointly share the role of Head Coach, a further congratulations to following for being successful in making up the rest of the coaching and management team; Matt Rolston as Assistant Coach, Matt Bartleet as Resource Coach, Lucas McIver as Team Manager, Carl Bishop as Assistant Manager and Terri Evanson as Physio for the team.

We are really looking forward to having this highly skilled and experienced team of people lead us through next year’s Heartland season and have another crack at winning the Meads Cup.

Merry Christmas to all our wider Thames Valley Rugby fans, supporters and followers and thank you for all that you do for our great game in The Valley.
