Director of Masters Rugby – Colonel Sandy Fitzpatrick MBE SCOTS
Col Sandy Fitzpatrick MBE SCOTS was commissioned into the Royal Highland Fusiliers in 1991 and has served at Regimental Duty in UK, BFG, and Cyprus and, deployed on operations in Northern Ireland, Bosnia, Iraq and Afghanistan. He is currently a SO1 at the Army Personnel Centre and will move in Apr 16 to be the Chief Of Staff of the Headquarters the School of Infantry.
On the rugby front I have been involved with Army Rugby since Sandhurst and have represented the Army at U21 (Capt), CSU21 (Capt), Infantry, BFG and Masters, playing my last Masters game in May 14. I have also played rugby in Australia, Edinburgh, Hanover 78, Darlington, Andover ’05-’07 and The Glasgow Academical Club. In tandem to playing representative rugby I have been the Rugby Officer at unit level and had a lead role in a civilian club until assuming the appointment of Director Masters Rugby.
It is a privilege to give something back to a sport one holds so dear. Rugby has contributed significantly to my military career and my life. My wife would at times say too much!! But, as the Director of Master Rugby I would seek to build on the fabulous work of my predecessors and suitably celebrate the 20th Anniversary of this very capable and honorable team.
He is married to Sarah and they have three teenage children still at school. When not involved with the Masters he is doing up his house in Ayrshire, game shooting or trying to watch some rugby.
