Rugby - 19. October 2007.

Women’s rugby gets a boost in the South West

 

The CCOs, who are two of ten CCOS recently appointed, will be responsible for supporting the development of women’s and girls rugby across the region. They will have an extensive remit which will include player development, coach development and club development.

 

Nick Gresswell, who is based in Taunton, will be responsible for covering Cornwall, Devon and Somerset. He said: “I have been involved in rugby development programmes for the past 15 years having worked with the RFU, Newcastle Falcons and various educational establishments and as I always enjoy meeting and engaging with new players and coaches within the game.

 

“In this new and exciting role primarily I hope to offer help, support and advice where possible and to expand my knowledge of South West rugby whilst trying to provide a great service for the volunteers who are working so hard in the women’s game.”

 

Victoria Buck, who is also based in Taunton, will be responsible for covering the Gloucestershire, Dorset and Wiltshire regions. She said: “It’s my aim to work with volunteer coaches, clubs and RFU staff to allow women and girls the best opportunities to play rugby at every level.  Over the next few months I am really looking forward to meeting the county and regional coaches and offer them my support. Together we can look at the training needs of coaches and set up a programme of courses and mentoring that will continue to improve the quality of coaching in the area.”

 

The appointment of the ten RFUW CCOs across the country has been supported by Sport England who awarded the union £1.4 million over three years in August. These monies have been specifically designated to be spent nationally to support club coach development.
