Puma Cubs Coaching Team

"Bringing Rugby to the Community and the Community to Rugby"

The Coaching team are made up of current and ex-Puma players but more importantly parents also trying out rugby for the first time.

The Puma Cubs offer and pay for RFU training courses for all those willing to help assist in training.

Why just stand and watch your children train, when you can help develop them and many others connected to the Club

Coach bio

Coach bio

Currently serving in the Royal Navy as an engineering Warrant Officer, Dave is 53 years of age and lives in Titchfield Common with his wife Jeanette and his two children Ava 12 and Ethan 9. Dave was raised and spent his childhood and teenage years in St Helens in the North West of England. Even though he grew up in a town that thrives on Rugby, albeit League, Dave was more interested in football. When he joined the Royal at 17, he started playing Rugby Union and played for the teams on the ships he served and for the naval establishments he was based at, his passion for Rugby Union was born. When Ethan became part of Locks Heath Pumas at the age of six, Dave joined the Pumas too as one of Ethan’s age group coaches. Three seasons later, Ethan is part of the under 10s squad and Dave continues to be one of their coaching staff. His love of volunteering is evident in his desire to coach the players and to see them progress throughout their playing careers.
