KELSO have unveiled their new coaching line-up ahead of next season (whenever that kicks-off), with Darren Cunningham returning to the club for a third stint as head coach and Bruce McNeil switching from Hawick in a player-coach capacity.

Former Scotland international Kevin Utterson also returns to the club as a support coach, and Neil Hinnigan is Director of Rugby after a period working with Heriot’s.

McNeil’s brother, Keith, and Nikki Little have also made the switch from Mansfield Park to add beef and experience to the pack.

  1. McNeil has had more clubs than Jack Nicklaus
