Following the conclusion of the 2021-22 campaign, Gloucester Rugby can now confirm our coaching structure for the 2022-23 season.
Head Coach George Skivington continues to spearhead the coaching team after signing a new long-term deal earlier this year.
We are also pleased to confirm that Defence Coach Dom Waldouck has agreed a new contract to remain at Kingsholm. Gloucester Rugby’s defence has gone from strength-to-strength this season, most notably recording a clean sheet in the 64-0 victory over West Country rivals Bath.
Skivington and Waldouck will continue work alongside Tim Taylor and Trevor Woodman to complete the coaching group for the 2022-23 season. Taylor will assume more responsibility for the attack in his position as Assistant Backs & Academy Transition Coach, and Woodman will also resume his role as Assistant Forwards & Academy Transition Coach.
With the coaching structure now confirmed for the new season. Gloucester Rugby can confirm that Alex King has departed the Club after a two-year period with the Cherry and Whites. We would like to thank Alex for his contribution to Gloucester Rugby and we wish him all the best for the future.
King arrived at Kingsholm as Attack Coach in the summer of 2020 having held similar roles at Northampton Saints, Clermont Auvergne and Montpellier.
Upon saying farewell to the Club, Alex passed on his best wishes to the team.
“I’m proud of what we have achieved over the last two years and of my contribution to the team’s development. I wish George and the team every success going forward."
Gloucester Rugby can also confirm that Peter Walton has left his role as Head of Academy having been at Kingsholm since 2019.
The club would like to express its thanks to Peter for his contribution and tireless work during a difficult and challenging time through the COVID period.
The identification and development of home growth talent is a significant part of Gloucester Rugby’s strategic plan for long term success on the field. We are committed to invest in the academy department and the search for Peter’s replacement has already begun.
Everyone at Gloucester Rugby wishes Peter well for the future.
