director of touch tim blakey

“The SCC Rugby Academy’s Touch section has come a long way since it was inaugurated in 2012. Starting with a handful of girls, we now boast more than 120 players. We also offer U18 training – the result of many of our girls growing up with us!

During this time, we’ve achieved some significant milestones – our players being selected for the Singapore “elite” squad, winning our first major tournament in KL (2015), winning our own SCC touch tournament on the Padang (2016) and successfully entering our SCC Lionesses in the TSG touch tournament (2018).

We’ve expanded our coaching team to many ex-Singapore national players and were delighted a few years ago when Angelina Liu Huiyun (Angel) came on board as Technical Director of Girls Rugby. 

2020 brought many challenges, not least adapting to the limited training “pod” structure as part of the Singapore fight against COVID. We adapted well and continue to flourish under Angel’s coaching leadership. 

We are excited (and hopeful) about the opportunity in 2022 to return to competitive games and to represent SCC in this dynamic and fast moving sport.”

Tim and Angel are supported by a team of coaches who look forward to seeing you down at Dempsey.
