Earl Marriott rugby coach to lead BC U18 team

Adam Roberts named head coach of BC Rugby's under-18s, which will travel to Ireland this summer.

Earl Marriott Secondary’s senior boys rugby coach, Adam Roberts, is headed to Ireland this summer.

The longtime high-school coach – and former player at Semiahmoo Secondary – was announced as the head coach of BC Rugby’s under-18 boys team in a news release issued earlier this month.

While the news was only made official March 16, Roberts’ appointment was reported in the Peace Arch News back in January, when Elgin Park Secondary’s rugby coach Mike Jamieson was announced as an assistant coach on the team.

Jamieson – who had won BC Rugby’s Gerald McGavin Coaching Award, along with the U18 position – told PAN at the time that Roberts was to be the head coach, and that the two longtime friends were looking forward to working together with the provincial side.

“Getting to coach this team together now is pretty fantastic,” Jamieson said.

This summer, both the boys and girls provincial U18 teams will travel to Ireland for a rugby tour.
