New faces, new approach in the senior coaching team

All thoughts may be on the last few games and the big one at Darlington Mowden Park, but next year’s head coach, Giles Heagerty is already building his personnel for the challenges of next season. Giles has made a decision to utilise internal expertise which more closely involves active members of the team; Tom Eaton will take on the role of senior squad skills coach, Dave Marwick will coach the forwards and Chris Jones will address strength and conditioning. Each will continue to play in the senior squad but will compete for a starting place like all other team members. We are also pleased to announce that Giles will be supported by Howard Hughes in the role of team manager – he brings a wealth of experience from similar roles with Lancashire U18s, North of England and England U18 clubs and schools. Player welfare and rehabilitation will be strengthened by Mike Carolin stepping up to the role of Head of Performance and we will be announcing a team doctor in the near future.

Two people who have contributed an enormous amount to the success of Macclesfield Rugby club will be retiring from their roles at the end of the season. Guy Mason, six years as strength and conditioning coach, has brought a professionalism to preparation and attitude that has been vital as we have progressed through the leagues. Paul Bartle will also be stepping down to spend more time with his young family. Paul, working with Fred Taylor, has developed the second team into a group of talented players who have had huge success in their own right as well as being capable of stepping up into the first team. Giles commented “both these men will leave a legacy of success at the club and I and the players would like to thank them for their tremendous efforts over the years”

Club chairman, Pete Harper, said “I am really excited about the new set up and I think it will serve us fantastically well whatever the outcome of the next few weeks. Giles has the full support of the management committee and I know of the players too. I would also like to pay my personal tribute to Guy and Paul. Many don’t appreciate the hours they have put in nor the level of expertise they have brought to the club. They really have played a key role in our success and I wish them the very best in their next endeavours. They know they will always be welcome at the club.”
