Harlequins have announced the appointment of Chim Gale as the Club’s Academy Manager.

Chim joins Harlequins from Worcester Warriors where he oversaw the Academy operation from delivering the strategic vision through to appointing coaches and managing key stakeholders across the region in order to provide those talented players with the best chance of success.

On the appointment Billy Millard, Harlequins General Manager, commented: “We had a strong group of applicants for this role and Chim was the absolute stand-out candidate for us.
