Chris and the Old Pats

I first played for the Old Pats in 2002 and I’m delighted to still be involved with the club. I retired from playing in the front row in the late 2000’s from a neck injury and started my coaching journey with the 2xv.

I then progressed to be the clubs forwards coach before moving on to develop my craft at other clubs. I returned as Head Coach in the 2019 season alongside my role as Director of Rugby at the University of Gloucestershire and have throughly enjoyed being back and steering the playing provision and working with the committee to develop the clubs vision for the future as well as completing my Level 3 coaching award.
