CINDERFORD are overhauling their coaching structure - a move which could see director of rugby Andy Deacon axed from his current role.

The "director of rugby" role is being removed and will be replaced by a "professional rugby manager" position.

New coaching positions will include head coach, assistant coach, a fitness and analytics coach and a Cinderford United team manager.

All positions will include revised responsibilities and duties and all positions will be advertised, suggesting the club is looking to shake up its current coaching line-up and bring in fresh faces.

A Cinderford RFC press release stated: "To meet the ever increasing challenge of National One Rugby, Cinderford RFC is restructuring the professional arm of the club, which will see a change in a number of positions and responsibilities."

Cinderford secured National One safety by the skin of their teeth this season, currently lying 13th in the table with their final game of the season against Wharfedale to play this afternoon at Dockham Road.

For more information about the coaching roles, please contact Mike Panoho: mikepanaho@cinderfordrfc.co.uk
