Bury St Edmunds have appointed Jack Heald as senior head coach, ahead of their new National League 3 campaign.

Heald was a standout candidate for the position and was most recently the head coach of National 2 side London Irish Amateurs.

The newcomer was head coach of the amateur side that successfully gained promotion from National 3 to National 2 and his experience will be key in the Haberden club’s progress.

Heald will work alongside playing chairman Terry Sands, director of rugby Gavin Hogg and Northampton Saints Academy Coach Jon Curry who will oversee the forwards.

He has coached at the Elite level of the game at Richmond and with Premiership team London Irish, as an academy coach, and will implement ideas and concepts from the Elite level to aid the development of the Green & Ambers’ squad.
