Simon Jones

U9 Coach

Simon took up Rugby at the age of 9 playing through school age groups up to U18. There was a ‘brief hiatus’ during his university days, with only the occasional invitational appearance, then a re-emergence in his mid-late 20s playing for Chew Valley 2’s in the North Somerset league. After hanging up his boots over a decade ago coaching has given him the opportunity to get back into the game he enjoyed so much. This is his second year of coaching the Canterbury Mini’s and he is looking forward to supporting the U8s this season.

Qualifications: England Rugby Coaching Award (Level 2); Rugby Ready; St John’s Ambulance First Aid at Work
