Another Talented Coach On Lions Books - Tuesday Talent: George Flatman
George is one of our most talented coaches, who is 100% reliable & committed. You might recognise George from some of our previous camps, most recently he coached on our 3 day camp at Guildford RFC during February half term. He certainly made a lot of the kids laugh throughout those 3 days & also helped them improve some of their key skills in rugby such as handling, kicking & running with the ball!
I hope you enjoy the sound of George as much as we do!
