WHITCHURCH Rugby Club have unveiled their new head coach.

Jordan Davies arrives at Edgeley Park following a successful spell at local rivals Oswestry.

Davies said: "After a successful stint at Oswestry RFC, for which Im extremely grateful to all the players and club for, I'm excited by the new challenge at Whitchurch RFC in regional two.


"We have some exciting teams in Midlands North, including a trip over to Douglas on the Isle of Man, so I am really looking forward to getting stuck into pre-season with the boys."

Davies has targeted a successful debut campaign and a top half of the table finish.

He said: "I'm sure we can build on the traditionally strong pack at Whitchurch with the added flair of an exciting, young backline and push to the top half of the table.

"We are also working hard behind the scenes to get the seconds and other forms of rugby up and running for a strong show in 2023/24."
