Press Release

The Management committee of Caerphilly RFC are pleased to announce that in an attempt to reverse the recent playing fortunes of the club at senior level the following appointments have been made for the 2015/16 season.

Head Coach    –       Christian Ferris

Forwards Coach   – Gareth Short

Backs Coach -          Nathan Gittins

Skills & Conditioning coach - Matthew Lewis

(Individual details to follow)

Club chairman Phil Emanuel stated “We are delighted to welcome Christian back to the club as head coach; I am sure the experience he gained as a player at the top level and in recent seasons as a Coach and Team Manager will be invaluable as the Green Army start on another rugby adventure.

He has recruited a team of coaches who will need little introduction to most Caerphilly supporters and I think I can safely say that the side will not lack commitment when it takes the field next season.

Christian and the coaching team have asked to speak to all sections of the club Mini’s, juniors, Ladies, Youth, Members and Vice Presidents and sponsors over the next week or so and we will circulate the dates as soon as they have been agreed.

I believe that these appointments are a massive step in the right direction and I ask you all to get behind Christian and the new coaching team and give them your full support.
