From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

David Addleton is currently forwards coach at Coventry R.F.C. and also played as hooker for the club until 2005.

Addleton made his debut for Coventry against local rivals Moseley in September 1989. "Aggie" joined Coventry from local club Barkers Butts and during an illustrious career also represented Warwickshire, the Midlands, Irish Exiles and the Barbarians.

Other career highlights include beating National Division One champions Newcastle Falcons in a close fought encounter at Coundon Road Stadium and the "lost" hat-trick in the forfeited match versus Rotherham.

In his final game for Coventry in April 2005 versus Bedford, Addleton injured his ribs in the first half and had to be taken off, but this injury was sustained as he was scoring his final try for the club. In total, "Aggie" played 354 senior club games for Coventry R.F.C. He was rewarded with a testimonial in 2005.

Addleton continued his work as a Rugby Development Officer in Coventry and Warwickshire schools and was appointed first team forwards coach in January 2006. In November 2006, he was appointed acting Head Coach following the suspension and subsequent resignation of Mike Umaga. When the new Head Coach Murray Henderson was appointed, Addleton reverted to the role of Forwards Coach again.

In February 2007, Brett Davey resigned as Head Coach, with Addleton taking over and guiding the team to a 29-10 victory over Plymouth Albion days later. It was announced by owner Andrew Green that Addleton would continue in the role until the end of the season.

When Phil Maynard was appointed as Head Coach in June 2008, Addleton once again returned to the position of Forwards Coach
