Harlequin Dave Ward Signs As Player/Coach For The Championship
Director of Rugby Mark Lavery is delighted to confirm that Harlequin Dave Ward has joined the Championship squad for 2019-20 as Player/Coach.
Hooker Dave, 34, 1.83m (6ft), 102kg (16st), brings a wealth of experience having played for Bath, Northampton, Sale and Harlequins (100+ appearances) in the Gallaghers Premiership as well as Cornish Pirates in the Championship.
Capped for England at U18, U21 and Saxons he toured with the full England squad to New Zealand in 2014/15.
“After talking to Mark Lavery and Head Coach Paul Turner it was a no brainer to sign for Ampthill. I couldn’t turn down the opportunity to further develop my coaching career and I’m looking forward to the challenge of helping Ampthill in the Championship.”
Head Coach Paul Turner comments “Dave is a great addition to our squad and coaching team, he brings huge experience and capability in areas where we were a little light in the past couple of campaigns.”
