Rugby Trio Promotion

Rugby goes from strength to strength at Birkdale, which is no surprise when you consider their outstanding team of coaches. The trio, which includes Adam Byron as Director of Rugby at Birkdale School is also Head Coach at the recently promoted Sheffield RUFC. They achieved promotion to National 2, which is the fourth tier of England rugby and are now looking forward to next season playing at a higher level.

Under his leadership at Sheffield RUFC, Steve Depledge, who plays scrum half was selected to represent Yorkshire in the Bill Beaumont Cup. This is a fantastic achievement, which is about as high as you can go before turning professional. Steve coaches Birkdale’s 1st XV.

Birkdale are also privileged to have Dominic Parsons as a rugby coach. He is captain of the successful Sheffield RUFC team and a great inspiration and role model for the Birkdale players.

Mr Byron, Mr Depledge and Mr Parsons would like to thank all Birkdale pupils and their families for their continued support down at Abbeydale. Many of our boys will look forward to supporting them next season.
