New director of rugby is Paddy O’Hara and deputy Director of rugby is Cat Thompson.

They will be a major driving force for Lewes Women this season, heading up a new coaching set-up for the section.

O’Hara said: “I am delighted to have been appointed. Although I am new to the club, I have followed Lewes RFC closely in my previous roles as head coach for the Sussex RFU Women’s team and Sussex Girls.

“Lewes has always struck me as a fantastic, well-run club and I’m really looking forward to working with the players, coaches and committee.

“Having played since 12 and coached for nearly 20 years, I bring a lot of experience in a wide range of settings and it is my aim help create an environment in which everyone can realise their potential.

Thompson added: “I’m so happy to be part of Lewes’ positive future, I’m dedicated to women’s rugby and the successful road Lewes is on.”

* The team plan to train on Tuesdays from 6:30-7:30pm and 7:45-8:45. If you’d like to attend, email [email protected]
