Bristol Rugby will add a new member to their backroom staff, as John Harrison joins the Club as Team Manager.

The former Bath Rugby Business Development Manager will take up his new role at the beginning of May.

Harrison will be responsible for the administration and management of the first team, as well as the welfare of all team members.

“I’d like to thank Andy [Robinson] and his team for all the efforts prior to my arrival, I look forward to working with the backroom staff, coaches and players in the coming seasons,” he said.

“The infrastructure now in place is geared towards making Bristol a successful operation on and off the field.”

Director of Rugby Robinson added: “John is an individual who brings vast rugby knowledge and I have no doubt that he will prove to be a highly effective appointment.

“John worked closely with the Bath Rugby youth set up, and his player development experience will be a huge bonus – he’ll become a valued member of the management team.”
