Mike Grady appointed as North Wales head coach

North Wales Crusaders have appointed former South Wales Scorpions head coach Mike Grady for the 2017 season.

Grady, who has been the head coach of South Wales Scorpions and assistant coach at Newcastle Thunder, joins the Crusaders ahead of their move to a new ground at Queensway in Wrexham.

Crusaders are looking forward to building on their success in 2016, having reached the League 1 Bowl Final but going down narrowly to Grady’s old club, Newcastle Thunder.

Grady said: “I’m looking forward to getting started with North Wales Crusaders, I’d like to thank the Club for the opportunity – it’s a challenge I’m looking forward to.”

An extensive interview with Grady will be in Monday’s League Express.
