Back for my second season coaching OPs after a very successful and enjoyable 2012/13 with promotion for both teams!

Former player at London Scottish until New Years Day when I suffered a very bad injury and I am currently about 18 months into a two year rehabilitation plan.

I am very much looking forward to the forthcoming season and working with the talented and exciting OP's squad.
