Gareth Lewis to depart his role of Director of Rugby at Huddersfield RUFC

Huddersfield RUFC announce the departure of long standing head coach and Director of Rugby, Gaz Lewis, at the end of this season.

Gaz has been with us for over a decade, initially as a player, but then rising up through the coaching structure to become Director of Rugby.

Gaz Lewis stated “All good things must come to an end and after a very special journey I will be stepping down as Director of Rugby at the end of the season. As a Huddersfield lad I have been incredibly proud of leading my home town Club for the past decade. The special bonds and friendships I’ve built down the years with so many outstanding people will always be treasured and it’s my aim to go out on a high in the final six games of the season.”

Chair of Rugby Paul Sharrock commented “We would like to place on record our thanks for everything Gaz has achieved over the last ten years. Under his stewardship we have achieved great things including the unbeaten National 3 North Campaign in 2016/17. He has also helped cement the club as a National 2 North team which included our highest ever finish in the 2018-2019 season. He will have been in charge for over 250 games by the end of the season which is a fantastic achievement.”

We wish Gaz all the best for the future in whatever he chooses to do and look forward to seeing him at Lockwood Park again.
