Andy Boyle our current Director of Rugby (DoR) is sadly leaving us in order to become the Headteacher at Barfield School in Surrey. Andy is a true Quin who has not only been our DoR but also Head Coach and a player during his many years of service at the club. Andy will be taking on his new role in November, until then we are pleased to say that he will continue working at Quins in the capacity as forwards coach to provide continued input and support to our senior sides and new DoR. 

The club are very fortunate to have such strength in depth and are thrilled to announce that Stuart Wells has accepted the role of Director of Rugby at Quins. Stu will be taking on this role from Tuesday 9 July and will be ably assisted by Head Coach Pete Davies. 

Like Andy, Stu has a rich history with the Quins, having joined as a Mini & Junior coach in 2007. Since then Stu has held a number of roles in the club including Mini & Junior Chair, Club Secretary and more recently as Lead Coach for the Academy. Stu is a Level 2 RFU Coach who has also been coaching at the Wasps Academy for last four years. 

Stu not only brings with him the benefit of established relationships within the club but also a strong track record of developing and delivering partnerships with all our major stakeholders. 

I am sure that you will all join me in wishing Andy the very best of luck in his new role and also in congratulating Stu in his appointment as DoR.
