While my rugby career stalled following University I have endeavored to pass on his love of the game to the Hong Kong Minis. I have been a coach with Valley Fort since my oldest started U5s in 2012 and Head Coach with my youngest for the last 5 years. Valley Fort rugby is not just sport but community. We are inclusive and accepting and we take all skill / experience levels so please bring your boy to Valley so he can make friends while playing God's game!
I've been coaching at Valley for last 7 years, and now have sons playing U13 and U11, and a daughter in U8, so my coaching has benefited from plenty of “constructive criticism”…. Along with Matt, I've been running this age group since they were U6, and have really enjoyed seeing them grow as individuals and as a group. During that time both the coaches and the kids have developed and learned new skills, and many great friendships have been forged. More than anything, we want the kids to enjoy themselves and to learn the values that make rugby unique: sportsmanship, teamwork, integrity, respect.
Andrew grew up in Hong Kong and currently plays Flanker for SocGen Valley RFC. He has played for the University of Wales Institute and represents Hong Kong in both Sevens and XV's. Andrew has his IRB Level 1 and 2 coaching qualifications.
