Following his retirement from professional rugby at Nottingham Rugby Club in order to take up a new full time position in the financial services industry, Dan Montagu, who has been head coach at Southwell for the past three years, is taking on a new role as Director of Rugby for the upcoming season.

As well as continuing to coach the senior teams and turning out for the Redmen on Saturdays, he will also be passing on his knowledge and experience throughout the club by assisting with the development of coaches and players for the ever-growing Junior Section.
