Head of Performance Pathway and Talent Identification

Ged Glynn

    A former fly-half with Orrell, Ged Glynn’s coaching career included spells with Loughborough University, Cambridge University, Rotherham, London Irish, England Under-21s and England 'A' as well as six years from 2004 as head coach of the Spanish national team.

    He joined Leicester Tigers as chief scout in 2010 and became head of rugby operations in 2014, taking on overall responsibility for the academy alongside the key areas of recruitment and retention.

    In his academy role, Tigers won two successive Under-18 League title, remaining unbeaten in both seasons, while a group of young players gained international recognition and developed through the club to reach first-team status.

    In the summer of 2019, as part of the expansion of the rugby department, Ged became Head of Performance Pathway and Talent Identification.

    This role provides an extra dedicated focus on the key area of scouting worldwide while also maintaining a clear performance pathway from the Developing Player Programme through to first-team squad and ensuring the club’s academy is the best it can be.

    He has responsibility for the senior development squad and liaises with other clubs to maximise appropriate game time for a player’s development.
