Hi, I’m Paul, ‘Head of Seniors’ here at Old Ruts. I’ve been a part of Old Ruts since 2011 having moved in from out of area and previously had spells coaching at both Teddington and Esher, two other excellent clubs. Old Ruts is a thriving place to enjoy your adult rugby years and I am lucky to be a part of it.
My rugby coaching journey started out in 2003 following England’s World Cup Final victory and deciding it was time to introduce my eldest son to rugby at the age of five! In the years that followed I have been heavily involved in coaching various age groups both with my three sons and also in many age groups excluding my own as I just love being a coach and helping others develop. I have coached at all levels up to senior rugby currently and I am a Level 2 coach and also qualified to coach rugby league, which is a side-line passion of mine as well.
The Old Ruts ethos from the ground up is all about player development and having fun and this has been a major contributory factor in ensuring that many of our players move into playing senior rugby after enjoying their junior rugby years and I’m proud to have my 3 sons and many of their friends all now playing as adults for Old Ruts. As a result we have become a very youthful senior rugby group led by many older players both on and off the pitch!
