Back in Action and New Head of Rugby

4th April 2018

TJs head to Wimbledon on Saturday for their N2S league clash. TJs were convincing winners back at The Slade in the first N2S encounter but winning on the road is never easy. The 4s are also in action with a home game against Sittingbourne 2s in Late Red 3. KOs at 3pm

Sunday sees the U17s at home to Crowborough as they prepare for their Kent Cup Final the following Sunday. The U12s are also at The Slade with a friendly against Warlingham.


The club has taken the step to develop rugby within Tonbridge and the West Kent area by appointing Darren Reeves as the club's Head of Rugby.

Darren has been a member of TJs since 2000 where he played 1st XV rugby and he has graced various other sides throughout the club.

He started coaching in 2005 when he took up a Community Rugby Coach role with the RFU where he coached in primary schools, secondary schools and colleges and helped coach at other clubs around the county on a Sunday morning. He has also coached county age groups and Kent Women and Girls.

In 2010 Darren took up a Head of Rugby position at a secondary school in Ashford where he coached school years 7 to 11 and developed a Sixth Form rugby academy. Whilst in this role, he also coached Ashford 1st XV for 3 seasons.

For just over 18 months, Darren has been running his rugby coaching business and works in several different establishments developing rugby across the county. He also delivers the SEN schools programme in partnership with Kent Rugby and Wooden Spoon.

Darren will be working to develop the senior men’s teams at training during the week, supporting the ladies, academy, junior and mini sections and setting up community links with partner schools and colleges to ensure that the club continues to thrive.
