The Women’s game has strong ties with Kent and as a County, we have always strived to put out the best women’s team in the county. We hold trials every year with a dedicated training programme for those selected. County coaches are appointed based on their expertise, experience, and commitment to the Women’s game. We are always welcome to hear from any level 2/3 coaches who wish to be involved in coaching women.
This season has seen a change in the format of the selection process for the squad. Two trial sessions were held at Charlton Park RFC with mixed teams of players from a variety of clubs competing against each other to showcase their skillset to the coaches and assessors. Feedback from players and their club coaches has been positive with many saying it was an enjoyable day and experience.
After two successful trial sessions and over 100 applications from women around the county, head coaches Peter McAlister and Andy Miller have selected this year’s representative squad (listed below).
The Management Team is:
Kent Women are pleased to announce that Peter McAllister and Andy Miller have been appointed as the new Coaching team for the 2022/23 season.
Both Peter and Andy are currently acting as selectors for the London and South East Division Under 18s and have previously been Head Coach at various clubs and will prove to be a formidable partnership. Bethany Gayson is a Qualified Sports Rehabilitation (MSc) practitioner and has been working with the Kent U18 and U16 girls this season.
All have a wealth of experience in their respective roles and provide a much needed boost to Women’s Representative Rugby in Kent.
