Head Coach, Ian Thompson joined us part way through the 2014/15 season. With a vast wealth of coaching experience over the years and numerous successes, we were able to overlook the fact that he was a past student at Lancaster University and all rivalries were put to one side.
Ian's coaching ethos focuses on developing the individual to become the best that they can be, but always within a team environment. Emphasis is placed on the true basics of Rugby Union, using those skills as a foundation to build upon during each session. As individual players we all visibly progressed and this immediately made an impact on our ability as a team.
