Ladies, Gents, Boys and Girls, it will be highly unlikely that you don't recognise this evergeen face, as he's been part of the Clubs fixtures and fittings for more years than we care to recall !
Jermaine Bernard, or "G-Man" as he's better known around the Club, is a former County and 1XV Player. As well as still turning out regularly for the 2XV & 3XV on a Saturday, he is also a current RFU Level 2 Coach.
Working along side the Head of Playing Affairs (Jim Looney), "G-Man" has accepted the position of Club Coaching Coordinator. His major roles will be, to -
1) Identify, recruit and develop coaches ensuring sufficient and appropriate coaching staff are assigned to each team, including illness cover, and establish the needs of club coaches.
2) Act as a point of contact for the RFU, Constituent Bodies and club coaches, ensuring that all coaches’ details and qualifications are registered and updated on the RFU Game Management System annually.
3) Design and lead the implementation of a suitable club coach development plan for all sections of the club, understand and publicise the RFU coaching courses and local coaching events and encourage the sharing and spread of best practice between coaches at different levels.
"G-Man" has a wealth of knowledge and experience both as a Player and Coach, so, if you need a hand, a word of advice, a 'Guest' Coaching Session, or need to know how to get on a Coaching Course, then he's the Man to go to.
