The best way to keep up to date with Novocastrians RFC


Coaching vacancies in the Ladies and Girls Section

6 months ago By Fran Mockford

We are looking for a number of coaches for their ladies and girls’ sections to continue the development of female rugby at the club.

The Ladies 1st XV are well established in National League competition regularly finishing in the top 4 and last season reached the semifinals of the national cup competition. The league is broadly spread geographically and includes opposition as far away as Swindon.

The 2nd XV, having been established during the 2016-17 season, compete in a regional league with fixtures broadly restricted geographically to the North-East area as far as Hull.

Both squads are made up of highly motivated and talented individuals keen to develop and improve on their current capabilities. The section as a whole caters for a wide level of ability, with a number of players achieving county recognition, as well as England U20 representation and North Region representation.

Beneath the ladies’ section there is an ever-growing girls section with its own coaching set up which is being developed to provide a pathway into senior rugby for local girls. The section has girls playing at U13s, U15s and U18s age groups.

Novocastrians as a club has some of the best playing and training facilities in the county with 2 full size floodlit pitches, a half size floodlit pitch as well as the main pitch.

We are looking for an assistant coach for the ladies’ section, to work alongside our existing head coach and 2nd team coach. We would like someone who displays a good understanding of player centered skill development, as well as good technical and tactical knowledge. In the girls’ section we are looking for coaches to head up several of the age groups and work with existing coaches. Coaching qualifications are preferred, or a desire to obtain/work towards coaching qualifications.

For more information on the roles or to express interest please contact Fran Mockford, Head of Ladies and Girls Rugby ( (see for more details on the club)
