Giles Hegarty announced as Premier15s side Firwood Waterloo Ladies new head coach

Hegarty, 36, is the current England Counties U18s lead coach has an impressive club pedigree having formally coached at Macclesfield RUFC.

The ex- flanker takes on the role immediately as the side moves into their pre-season preparations for their second year in the Tyrells Premier15s league.

The North West side finished ninth in the inaugural year of the new highly competitive elite league and celebrated a number of wins and draws, giving Hegarty a solid base to build on.

On his appointment Giles Hegarty said “I am delighted to join Waterloo Ladies at what is clearly an exciting time for both the club and Women’s sport. The opportunity to play a part in the team’s development was not one I could turn down and I am looking forward to getting stuck into preseason.”

Firwood Waterloo Ladies Chair Helen Duggan believes the new appointment will take the players to the next level “We are delighted to be welcoming Giles to our Wolfpack. He has a wealth of experience and I know it will help to bring out the best in the players, taking them onto the next step in their development.

“On reflection the ladies had an extremely successful first season in Tyrells Premier15s league but we have it in us to do more and we are excited for what Giles will bring to our squad and next year.”

Firwood Waterloo Ladies finished ninth in the Tyrells Premier League of ten teams with 18 points after securing two wins, two draws, one try bonus point and three losing bonus points.

Beth Stott was the top kicking points scorer for the league, an amazing testament to her accuracy.
