New Ghk Coaching Team 2010

GHK are pleased to announce its new coaching team. Having narrowly missed out on promotion this year the coaching team below are seen as the right blend to secure promotion to National 2.

Head Coach- Kenny Hamilton
Stepping up from forwards coach last year Kenny has  considerable experience of Scottish rugby at many levels.   Kenny has been Director of Rugby at both GHK and Hawks and has coached Glasgow age grade sides up to Under 21 level. His tactical awareness and organisational skills will ensure every game is well prepared for.

Assistant Coaches

GHK are delighted to welcome back several former players to work on specialist areas.

Rob Holdsworth- backs and game analysis.

Rob was a talented scrumhalf for GHK and Hawks. He now works for Glasgow Warriors as their Performance Analyst. Rob has also worked with Scotland A and Scotland and will be able to bring the latest ideas from the professional game to Old Anniesland. Rob is now keen to further his own coaching career and work with our talented backline.

Liam McIntyre- forwards coach and front five specialist.

Liam has played with distinction  and been involved in all levels of rugby.  He has propped at  age grade representative level; played for GHK and was part of the strong Cup and league winning team at Glasgow Hawks. Recently Liam has coached National 3 team, Helensburgh. All at GHK are pleased to have him back.

Gerry Hawkes- back three specialist.

Gerry's nickname of ' hitman' says it all. He was  a prolific scorer with GHK, Hawks and Hamilton. Gerry has also been involved in league and cup success and will bring  a wealth of experience to impart to our younger players.

Our coach from last year, Charlie Dunlop, who steered the team into promotion the previous year is standing down due to work commitments. He will remain involved and will link up with coaches above. Our thanks also to Ken Cowan whose motivational skills and fitness sessions greatly aided the team.

The GHK 2nd xv coaching team who did  a tremendous job taking the team to second place will remain in position. Henry Gray, Glenn Woolard and Mike Gribben. Their hard work was exemplified by the number of 2nd xv players who moved to the 1sts.
