Jonathan Jones appointed assistant S&C


Jonathan Jones has been appointed as an Assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach for the Dragons in 2019.

He has previously worked at English Premiership Club Everton and has good coaching experience in a number of sports. His appointment comes after he took the opportunity to self-fund a personal development trip to the Dragons in the summer of 2018. Over a 2 week period he made a significant impression on both staff and players as a young, enthusiastic, knowledgeable coach. 

Jonathan Jones : “I’m delighted to have been offered the role at the Dragons. Having experienced a small part of what the Dragons are about as a club last season, it was an offer I could not refuse when Steve and Rich asked if I’d like to a part of the performance staff. I’m looking forward to getting started, contributing to the players development and performance preparation.”

Following the application process and a review by Head Coach Steve Mcnamara and Head Of Performace Richard Hunwicks, it was agreed that Jonathan's attributes and work ethic would add value to the Dragons performance team.

Head of Performance Richard Hunwicks says “We are always looking to improve, develop and challenge each other and Jonathan is a great example to other young coaches out there, he came to us through his own enthusiasm to develop, made an impression, listened, learned, contributed and eventually earned the right to work with the Dragons.”

His role will support injury rehabilitation, player preparation, strength coaching and junior player development.
