We are delighted to have secured Billy’s services as Head Coach of our senior section. Pleasingly the role attracted a large number of applications featuring a number of high-quality candidates. While his track record as a player and coach is very strong and speaks for itself, Billy really impressed us with his empathy with our club and our values, particularly the importance of transitioning the wealth of talent we produce in our junior set-up in to senior rugby. Allied to this he has the experience and leadership skills required to build and lead an integrated senior coaching team that will provide our players with the best possible environment to develop their skills and create the platform for a successful season in 2019/20. I know from speaking to our players that they’re excited about Billy being appointed as Head Coach and are looking forward to working with him next season. In turn I know that Billy can’t wait for pre-season to start, we wish him and the players all the best for a great season in 2019/20.”

 

 – Vince Kerr, Chairman, Chobham RFC

 

“I am excited about the prospect of returning to senior coaching – and to supporting an open, friendly and ambitious community club. The support I have received from the Chobham faithful has been amazing and I am looking forward to building and supporting all the players as we look forward to a great season.”
