Club President Stanley Turkington said, “We were very impressed with Justin when he assisted us last season as technical advisor, both he and Kieran are no strangers to Dungannon and follow in the footsteps of many notable coaches. We are delighted that both have stepped up to the plate as we enter a new season, and wish them every success.”

Justin will be assisted by his old London Irish, Ulster and Ireland team mate Kieran Campbell who returns to the club following his time with Connacht. Kieran is returning in a player/coach capacity and his experience both on and off the field will prove invaluable to the squad.

The club is ambitious to gain promotion to Division 1A of the AIB All Ireland League after retaining our Division 1B status. With this goal in mind, the coaches and players are working very hard and have already made significant strides during pre-season in preparation for the upcoming campaign.

Club rugby is the foundation of the sport and we will continue to play our part in contributing to the successful promotion of Ulster and Irish Rugby. Furthermore Dungannnon erugby club intends to maintain it’s commitment to the promotion of rugby as a healthy and worthwhile activity for the young people in our area.

The Club Chairman Victor Scarlett continues by sating that,: “The appointment of Justin Fitzpatrick is a positive commitment to the future of club rugby in Dungannon and Ulster and we have no doubt that we will have a successful and exciting time under Justin’s Leadership”.

It is a delight to report on Dungannon for InTouch Rugby and for a we small town like Dungannnon to be competing against the likes of Lansdowne must bring a smile to all our faces!

We wish Dungannon well and look forward to cvoering them this season.
