Chairman of Rugby Paul Kelly is pleases to announce that Mike Hughes has been appointed as 2nd XV player/coach. He takes over from Andrew ‘Jibbo’ Jibson who stepped down after a number of years at the end of last season. We see this is an important role as we look to develop our younger players and compete in the new Raging Bull Premier League. In developing the club over the next few years it’s important to improve the pathway from Senior Colts to Senior Rugby.
Mike is a local lad who made his senior rugby debut at Sale FC as a 17th year old and played for 6 seasons before joining Stockport RUFC as the Backs player/coach. He has also been backs/assistant coach for Manchester University.
Mike said –
‘it is great to be back at Sale FC where I first played senior rugby. I’m really looking forward to the challenge in what will be a tough league. We have an exciting crop of young players that I hope to help and support as they progress on as senior players’.
