13 May 2016 : Adam Preocanin launches ambitious Coaching Career
Adam Preocanin launches ambitious Coaching Career

Adam Preocanin a stalwart and regular of the Green King Championship for London Scottish and most recently Ealing Trailfinders has joined London 1 outfit Old Priorian RFC as forwards coach alongside his  continued efforts at Ealing and their meteoric rise through the leagues.  


The appointment of Head Coach Greg Knights  has lent a sense of urgency to Old Priorians quest for London 1 success and the appointment of Preocanin signals just how much intent there is from the young club.


A graduate of Saracens Academy and their ‘A’ team in 2006-2008 Adam went on to play in the Eastern Districts and with the University of Queensland in Australia. Now in his third season of Championship rugby he said “ This is an excellent opportunity to work locally with some very talented young players in what is a misleadingly tough league, hopefully I can pass on my skill set and give the club that competitive edge”


Head Coach Greg Knights went on to add “ In many ways this is a return home for me, I spent some time here when it was a fledgling club and I couldn’t be more happy to see what the club has achieved in my absence. Adam is going to give us an insight into professional rugby and will hugely add value as a member of the coaching staff”


The club based in Perivale will enter its third season in London 1 rugby this 2016/17 season.
