Press Release - Director of Rugby
At their last Management Committee Meeting Dunfermline Rugby Football Club appointed Andy Morgan as Director of Rugby.
Andy’s remit is to build on the momentum of the ‘Positive Coaching Scotland’ Accreditation and adopt & adapt an on field draft development plan to address integration between the junior & senior sections on & off the pitch.
Andy has been involved, with the support of many others, in the development of the PCS Accreditation for our club and this appointment is a development of this process. Key priorities will be developed to identify actions that we need to take to capitalise on the recent progress and develop a sustainable plan for the future well-being of our club. It is hoped that the membership will respond and provide the support and encouragement Andy will need to realise these aims.
Andy’s priorities will include
• Develop a Junior Development Programme to ensure an improved transition between u16 to U18 and U18 to Senior rugby
• Enhance the Colts coaching set-up to produce young players ready to play senior rugby.
• Build on Coaches Meetings & Workshops as well as ‘Invitational Coaches’ sessions through the Club Coach Co-ordinator role.
• Develop a clear remit for club coaches by age group of the achievable competencies of their players by the end of their age group. Basically, building a ‘coaching ‘curriculum’ for their players. This will include adult players.
