Andy Barnett appointment as Rugby Development Officer at Biggar
In the same week that we bid farewell to Iain Chisholm who has secured employment with Highland RFC we are delighted to welcome his replacement Andy Barnett.
Andy joins us having most recently spent 12 years at George Watsons College during which time he occupied a variety of differing roles and all of them with distinction.
Andy co-coached (along with Ally Donaldson) the GWC 1st XV Cup squad from 2006. In 2007 George Watsons competed for the Under 18 cup and did so again in 2011-2012, before finally lifting the title on four successive years from 2012-2016. In addiiton to this role Andy oversaw strength and conditioning across all sports at the School but in particular for Rugby.
Andy also worked on long term player planning development spanning P4–S6 age groups as well as undertaking outreach work to recruit and encourage children to play Rugby.
Andy has also coached at Edinburgh District Level at both Under 17 and U18 levels and has varied experience of conditioning provision with competitors at Commonwealth and Olympic competition levels within Hockey, Canoeing and Athletics.
As if that isn’t enough Andy also oversaw the development and opening of the new Centre of Excellence Sports Facility at GWC building upon his prior career experience with Edinburgh Leisure while also driving up numbers within the Summer Camp programme held annually at GWC .
The arrival of Andy to work alongside Nic Humphries represents a major acquisition for Biggar RFC and one which has the potential to make significant advances in the provision of rugby within both School and Club.
The team of Academy Manager and DO will soon be augmented with the appointment of a new Modern Apprentice as Rhiannon comes to the end of her term in this post.
Andy will commence in his new role at the club on Monday (24th April) when he will look forward to meeting everybody although he does hope to be down at Hartree Mill on Sunday. Please accord him a warm welcome and he comes with the best wishes of the club for a successful tenure as DO.
From his point, Andy is delighted to become part of Biggar RFC and is relishing the challenge offered in his new role.
Andy will continue to use the same DO email address firstname.lastname@example.org but will have a new mobile number which will be made available to all as soon as is arranged .
