Cambuslang are delighted to announce the appointment of Stuart Docherty as forwards coach for the 2018-19 season.
Stuart was a community coach for Irvine Rugby Club for 7 years working within various schools in the local community. During his playing career he played mostly for Irvine however 2 years ago decided to challenge himself at a higher level with Ardrossan Accies playing in both National 2 and National 3. Stuart who is UKCC Level 2 coach has decided to focus on his coaching career with a move into senior coaching.
Following his first session Stuart commented “This will be my first step into senior coaching however I’m keen to use my knowledge and experience to help Cambuslang develop as a unit and team. I will be looking to help Cambuslang improve in the tight and loose, so teams know when they face us they are in for a tough afternoon.”
He continued “I’m very excited about the season ahead and I hope the players buy into what I can offer, and that they believe in themselves that they are good enough to achieve and need to want to achieve.”
On the appointment Head Coach Jamie Seery said “I’m delighted to welcome Stuart to Cambuslang and I’m certain he can help the squad improve on last season’s performances with the experience he brings”

Here we are at the start of season 2018-19 and it is only July when Wimbledon and World Cup fever grips the nation !
The players have had their first training session and numbers attending were encouraging.
We managed to retain our Division 1 West standing and look forward to locking horns with many of last seasons’ teams along with National 3 relegated Dalziel and Division 2 promoted Strathendrick and Cumnock.
We are eager to maintain, at the least, last season’s position and all going well, move up the league but need to recruit new players at all levels and just as importantly coaches with experience to achieve this goal.
At senior level the the club is particularly keen to recruit a forwards coach and increase the small pool of players that gave sterling service last season.
Also for the first time we are aiming this season to attract girls and women alike as the popularity of women rugby increases in many clubs throughout the country and beyond and are extremely fortunate that an SRU appointed representative and current woman player will spearhead this initiative at Cambuslang.
We would be extremely keen to hear from anyone that can help in whatever capacity, to contact the club as soon as possible. For more information contact numbers of committee members are available under the heading ABOUT THE CLUB
