Engledow joins Boishaai family

Paarl Boys’ High announced the appointment of Peter Engledow, current coach at Griquas, as the new “Head of Rugby”.

He replaces Sean Erasmus, who accepted an offer to join the Golden Lions Rugby Union, as “Head of Rugby”.

According to Derek Swart, principal of Paarl Boys’ High, the panel which handled the appointment had the privilege of working with some excellent candidates, and after a thorough process it was decided to appoint Engledow.

He studied at Stellenbosch University, and after coaching at Table View High School moved to England for more than a decade, where he was appointed to St Joseph’s College, Ipswich, where he was Director of Rugby.

He returned to South Africa and joined the Griquas Rugby Union, where he was initially appointed assistant coach.

However, he became head coach of Griquas’ Vodacom and Currie Cup teams, winning the Vodacom Cup in 2014 as well as ending runner-up in the 2017 Supersport Rugby Challenge, with a 90% winning ratio.

“It is a great honour and privilege to become part of the Paarl Boys’ High culture,” Engeldow said.

“The selection process was comprehensive, but I am determined to make the school proud and successfully replace Sean Erasmus.”

Erasmus was the head of rugby for five years at the school and achieved unknown successes with the 1st XV.

Highlights of his time at Paarl Boys’ High include being unbeaten for three years in a row as well as a four-year winning streak against town rivals, Paarl Gimnasium in the annual Interschools clash.

In the 2nd XV only two games were lost in the five years of Erasmus’ tenure.

Engeldow will join the Paarl Boys’ High family towards the end of October.
