Bristol hand Oliver head coach role

Kim Oliver has taken over the reins as Bristol Ladies head coach, a role she has been covering since the departure of Kris de Scossa, having been appointed by the club as their assistant coach at the start of the season.


Bristol have been going through some troubled times, having lost a number of their international players and having won only three of their eight matches in the new Tyrrells Premier 15s League.

“It is a great opportunity for me to put my stamp on things,” said Oliver. “The girls have had a couple of difficult games so we need to work on our team culture and get a bit more physical to become an 80-minute team.”
