Peter Kelly

Strength & Conditioning Coach

Peter took over as the Club’s Strength & Conditioning Coach in April 2010. He works with the first team and Academy players, helping them with their physical development by preparing and implementing player training programmes.

Peter holds a Degree in Physical Education with honours, majoring in exercise and sports science from the University of Otago in his native New Zealand. He is an accredited Strength and Conditioning Coach through the UKSCA.

Prior to moving to the UK, Peter worked with the Otago Air New Zealand Cup Rugby Squad as well as the Otago Highlanders Super Rugby Squad. He has also worked as an assistant lecturer for various papers at the University of Otago, school of Physical Education.

Peter moved to the northern hemisphere in mid 2006 to play rugby and has been playing at semi pro level ever since. He currently plays for Canterbury and frequently plays international invitational Sevens tournaments around the globe.

He doesn’t get involved with the office football banter as he’s a keen rugby fan and follows the All Blacks.
