UHS Boosts Coaching Staff

Union High School has recently appointed Mr. Ashwell Adams as the new coach of the school’s second rugby team.

Mr. Adams, who moved back to Graaff-Reinet earlier this year, is a born and bred Graaff-Reinetter, having matriculated at Spandau Secondary School, before moving to Port Elizabeth.  Apart from being extremely passionate and knowledgeable about rugby, Mr. Adams also boasts an IRB Level 1 Coaching qualification and has built up valuable experience these past 16 years coaching the rugby teams of Bertram High School in Port Elizabeth.

“I am confident that I will be able to contribute hugely to Union’s rugby from this experience,” Adams said.

Mr. Adams is looking forward to playing a part in the development of rugby at Union High School and to using all his knowledge to take the school’s rugby forward and grow it from strength to strength.

“Our boys can be confident that the standard of coaching they are being exposed to is right up there with the top rugby schools in the province,” said the newly appointed coach.

As can be seen with the second team’s stellar performance this past Saturday against Stirling High School, Mr. Adams has wasted no time in getting the boys fit to compete.
