Nelly Named as Head Coach

Following yesterday’s news that Patrick Horgan had stepped down as Head Coach, the club today announced that his replacement would be Neil (Nelly) Edwards.

Well known to Neath supporters, Nelly has been the club’s assistant coach during the last season, helping to guide the team to the SWALEC Cup final.  Before that he coached Ebbw Vale to the Division 1 title.

He of course also played for Neath, where he was a hard no nonsense forward and one of the very best line out jumpers in the league.

A fans’ favourite as a player, he appointment as Head Coach should also be a popular decision amongst supporters.
