Orrell RUFC seek new 2XV Head Coach and Assistants for the 2018/19 season

The Team
Over the last three years Orrell’s 2XV has gone from strength to strength under the guidance of Head Coach Glynn Worley and Assistants Pete Carletti and Andy Carroll. As part of the Club’s policy to promote from within and developing our own players and coaches as much as possible, both Pete and Andy stepped up to first team coaching duties in 2017.

In 2016/17 the team won promotion as champions from Division Five North of the Raging Bull Leagues and has recently secured back to back promotion by securing an automatic promotion spot.
The team narrowly lost out in the cup semi-final only a matter of weeks ago, against a very good Ruskin Park 1XV and regularly have over 20 players competing for positions on a Saturday afternoon.

Looking to future after the retirement of head Coach Glynn Worley, the team are looking to recruit and or promote from within a second team head coach and assistants for the 2018/19 season and beyond.

The role presents an excellent opportunity for an enthusiastic candidate to work with like-minded people in a competitive, challenging but rewarding environment.
