Steve Joslin has been appointed the new head coach of the North Midlands senior side for this season’s Bill Beaumont County Championship campaign.
Joslin, an RFU Level Three coach, is currently coach of Worcestershire & Herefordshire and is responsible for Community Rugby at Worcester Warriors.
He fills the gap left by former Luctonians director of rugby Alex Davidson who stepped down as North Midlands head coach just before the start of last season’s County Championship.
Joslin, who was appointed after a rigorous recruitment and interview process, has 25 years of coaching experience around the world including the Trinidad & Tobago national side, Munster Ladies and Stratford upon Avon.
“We are delighted that Steve has agreed to take on the challenge of the North Midlands senior squad and we look forward to this season’s campaign,” said Ian Strangward, North Midlands coaching co-ordinator.
Other appointments to the North Midlands coaching team will be confirmed before the opening County Championship match against Hampshire at Gosport & Fareham on May 5.
North Midlands host Warwickshire at Bromsgrove on May 12 and then travel to Taunton to face Somerset on May 19.
