The Club wish to inform its Membership that Rob Baldwin, Director of Rugby, will be stepping down from his role at the end of this season.
In view of this change, the Club has evaluated its requirements for a rugby management team and has decided to appoint a new Director of Rugby/Head Coach, to provide effective leadership and coaching, and to assume overall responsibility of the Club’s playing and coaching resources. Both our current coaches Jon Feeley and Jon Skurr, with full time careers and young families cannot commit to this additional responsibility. Therefore, the club will shortly commence a recruitment and selection process for a new Director of Rugby/Head Coach.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank both Rob and the two Jon”s for their contribution to Wharfedale RUFC over the last 4 years. We have no doubt that the Club will continue to benefit from their contribution as it moves forward. You will be glad to know that Rob will continue to act in a liaison role to the senior rugby element, whilst pursuing his coaching career on a Sunday morning! We hope that the Jon’s will continue to frequent The Avenue on a regular basis.
Further announcements will be made in due course.
