Following the departure of World Cup winning coach Gary Street and Harlequins Ladies forwards coach Ali Mortimer, OURFC have announced the new coaching team for the women’s section for the upcoming 2018-19 season: Head Coach Kevin Moggridge will be joined at Iffley Road by Luke Cozens.
Moggridge, affectionately known as ‘Moggy’ among the playing group, has plenty of experience at the top levels of women’s rugby, as a previous forwards coach for England Women’s U20’s and most recently Head Coach of Sweden Ladies and Director of Rugby for Cardiff Met Women’s Rugby.
Cozens is a professional fly-half currently plying his trade in France having previously featured in the England U20’s and Bath Academy. His coaching positions include Head Coach of the Rouen University Ladies XV and kicking specialist for Hartpury College.
Women’s Blues Captain Abby D’Cruz said “Trinity Term has been a really successful period for us, having secured a phenomenal coaching team. It’s all added to a real sense of excitement and anticipation within the squad as we build towards the Women’s Varsity Match in its 30th Anniversary year. We can’t wait for what lies ahead.”
