ENGLAND Counties XV have appointed Simon Hicklin as their new assistant manager.

Hicklin succeeds Matt Long, the former Birmingham & Solihull prop, who was appointed manager of the England Counties XV for their tour of Georgia last summer following the retirement of Mike Old.

Hicklin is team manager of Greene King IPA Championship club Plymouth Albion and has held similar positions with the Royal Navy senior XV, the Navy Sharks sevens team and the Royal Marines.

Hicklin, 44, has also coached Devonport Services RFC and been a team leader for the Royal Marines Sports Presentation Team.

He previously served in the Royal Marines as a colour sergeant and has worked as a sports tours co-ordinator.

“Simon brings with him a wealth of experience given his time with the Royal Marines and Royal Navy teams and as team manager of Plymouth Albion,” Long said.

“He will be joining an experienced management team and help to ensure a successful campaign.”

Hicklin joins the England Counties XV management team ahead of their two internationals this season against Scotland Club XV at Fylde on February 27 and France Federale XV at Perigeux on March 20.
