NEW HEAD COACH APPOINTED
The Club has appointed Jordan Thompson as Head Coach. Jordan’s first senior club was Sittingbourne and he played with us from 1997-2001. He has since played for Sheppey, Westcombe Park, Ash, Deal and Betts and Kent Veterans in a career spanning 21 years. He has coached Ash and Deal and Betts U18 Ladies, and so brings a wealth of experience to the Club. He is married with three children and currently lives in Ash.
"As Sittingbourne was my first senior club and still holds true the rugby family ideal, I welcome the chance to put something back to the club that gave me my start in rugby life"
