London Scottish are delighted to announce today that Simon Amor will become Head Coach this summer, this following on from the news that Brett Taylor will be leaving the club as Director of Rugby.

Amor who has been at the club since 2008 as player and assistant coach takes on this full time role leaving his current job as Performance Advisor at UK Sport.
Amor who has formerly been a professional player with both Gloucester and London Wasps, also captained the England Sevens team between 2001 and 2007. His playing career has been highlighted by being a Heineken Cup winner with Wasps, Commonwealth Silver medallist in 2006 and being awarded World Sevens Player of the year in 2004.

MPU

Amor went to Hampton School and his academic achievements include a BSc in Sports Science from St.Mary’s University, a MA in Social and Political Science & Management Studies from Cambridge University and a
Master of Business Administration from Southern Cross University in Australia..

Simon Amor said, “I have been extremely fortunate and proud to have worked for UK Sport over the past 2 years in what has been a challenging but hugely rewarding period. With the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics around the corner it was a very difficult decision to leave the organisation and the sports I have supported and advised over the past 2 years and of course I wish them the very best of luck for the rest of their journey. However to be offered the role of Head Coach at London Scottish with both its past history and current ambition to return to the top level of the game was too good an opportunity to turn down. I look forward to working with the coaches, support staff, players, supporters, sponsors and other stakeholders to continue the clubs development and achieve success both on and off the pitch.”

Tony Copsey CEO London Scottish said, “I am delighted that Simon has accepted the appointment as Head Coach of London Scottish. He has been a central figure in London Scottish development over the past couple of seasons working alongside Brett Taylor and this appointment I believe allows us to continue that development with continuity. He is an extremely well respected member of the squad and coaching staff and this was instrumental in us appointing him. The fact also that he is leaving a fantastic role within UK Sport as we come up to the Olympics in London only goes to show Simon’s passion and commitment towards London Scottish.”
