We are delighted with the new appointments in our head coach and development coach.

John Armstrong joins our club in the role of @qubbc Head Rowing Coach. John is a past captain of both Queen’s and Lady Vic Rowing Clubs. The appointment is made in partnership with @rowingireland. Head of Sport Liz McLaughlin commented “The appointment of John as Rowing Head Coach is an exciting step for everyone involved with Rowing at Queen’s but in particular our student clubs.

Our recent partnership with Rowing Ireland focuses on developing performance athletes through this Head Coach role but, as we also anticipate the appointment of a Rowing Development Officer later this month, we are looking forward to broadening our participation numbers and the infrastructure around all levels of rowing at Queen’s University in the coming years.”

Meghan Hunter is our new Development Coach. Meghan has a wealth of experience having previously coached at the University of Edinburgh and Kingston Grammar School in England
