Chairman Jon Jones is delighted to announce that Greg Woods will be joining the Steelmen as Head Coach and will take up his role on January 8th.
Jones said “ We were delighted that a coach of Greg’s standing put himself forward for the role and as a man with superb experience in Premiership and Gwent rugby we felt that he was the ideal person to reverse the fall in performance and return the club to the top end of the Premiership. With over 500 games in the Premiership, creating highly competitive teams , a National Cup Winner and B&I Finalist Greg will bring a clear focus and the experience required for the task in hand. Out of respect for Greg’s 15 years at Cross Keys we have agreed to a handover period that takes the clubs through to the next break in the season.
The remainder of Greg’s coaching team will be identified in the next week or so
In the meantime I would like to thank the WRU and Dragons for allowing members of the coaching staff to take us through this period, giving the club the space to ensure it took a measured approach to the coaching team appointments
I’m sure Greg can expect a warm Ebbw Addicts welcome as he takes up his new post.”
