This session sees a new sports development strategy for George Watson’s with the appointment of Directors of Hockey and Rugby.
Mike Leonard, ex Scotland internationalist and Captain, is now Director of Hockey (for both girls and boys). Ally Donaldson, SRU Scottish Rugby Coach of the Year, fresh from helping Currie win the Scottish Premiership has been appointed as Director of Rugby.
They will steer the development of these sports throughout the School, both Junior and Senior, including the management of individual players and team development programmes. They will also liaise with the respective Watsonian Sports Clubs.
Whilst not in any way intended as promoting these two sports at the expense of the many others at which pupils excel, these positions will assist the School in its aim of maintaining and building upon the fine successes of recent years which testify to the talent and motivation of pupils and staff alike.
