Retired player picks up new rugby job

A YOUNG rugby player forced to retire through injury has been tasked with promoting the sport in Midlothian.

James Sloggie, 25, who played for Peebles and a Borders representative side, has been appointed rugby development officer at 
Midlothian Council.

Mr Sloggie was forced to quit the game after suffering a back injury and turned his attentions to coaching.

He moves into the role from a similar position with Moray Council.

He said: “This is a fantastic opportunity to get out into Midlothian and 
promote rugby as a great sport to all age groups.

“I’ll be working closely with all three clubs in Midlothian alongside Lasswade Rugby Club development officer Jack Forrester and two modern apprentices.”

The three clubs are Dalkeith, Penicuik and Lasswade.
