Derek Wood appointed new Hawick YM coach

Derek Wood has been appointed the new coach of Hawick YM.

The former Redskins player takes over from Jammy McFarlane, who led the Mansfield Haugh side to back-to-back promotions to Championship B last season.

The club then consolidated their position in the third tier of Scottish club rugby, finishing a respectable fifth. McFarlane has left after taking on a development officer role at Kelso at the start of the year.

Hawick YM will face relegated Jed-Forest next season, as well as promoted Livingston.
