Having held roles previously as both Director of Rugby and Head Coach at clubs within Bristol and Somerset he now joins Norton as Head Coach for the rest of the season with ambitions of future league success and installing his coaching philosophy within the Senior Men’s set up at Norton Down.

“Tom is a great fit for MNRFC and we are excited about the influence he can have on our squads,” said Alex Davis (Chairman). “Tom has already been working with the Seniors, as well as assisting the Juniors over the past few months, and the feedback has always been brilliant. There is a lot for players and supporters to look forward to.”
