Chobham RFC are pleased to announce the appointment of Chris Dodd as lead Devils Coach. Chris is well known to Chobham having played for the club at mini, junior, Devils and 1st XV level. After leaving Wellington College, he completed a degree in Sports Psychology before embarking on a coaching career that has included coaching spells in league and union with Harlequins. An RFU Level 2 coach, he is currently in Brazil working for Premiership Rugby on their global rugby development programme. Chris joins us in July.
The appointment of Chris and Liam Cranford as 2nd XV coach mean that together with Head Coach Ryan Gregory and Assistant Coach Tony Paul, and our existing Devil’s coaching team of JP Laurent and Ian White, we have a fully integrated coaching structure right across the senior section of the club. Given the success of the integration of our junior players into senior rugby, this puts us in a tremendous position to develop our talent even further.
