Pendlebury

Biography

A former player with the club, Jon joined the coaching staff ahead of the 2012-13 season, following his retirement from playing. A hugely passionate player Jon will bring his enthusiasm for the club to his new role where he will work with the next generation of players looking to break into the first team.

He joined the club originally in 2008 from Gloucester and made 53 appearances in the following four seasons. He announced he was retiring and joining the coaching staff at the end of the 2011-12 season.

Jon previously played in the county with Rotherham where he was a formidable presence in the second row and during his debut season he made 30 appearances and scored three tries as the team secured promotion to the Premiership.

During the 2009-10 season he made 11 appearances for Carnegie and used his experience and leadership skills to skipper the A team to their most successful season to date, making it to the semi final of the A league competition.

Rotherham born Pendlebury made a promising start to his rugby career and earned representative honours with England at U18, U19 and U21 level, this culminated in him being selected for the England U21 side who played in the FIRA World Cup in 2003. He was a member of the Bath Academy structure before he was signed for Gloucester in the 2004-05 season.

He made his first team debut for the Cherry and Whites against Toulon in the European Challenge Cup the following season and played a key role in their success in the competition that year, appearing in the starting line up in the final against London Irish where Gloucester triumphed 36-34. Competition for places from the likes of Marco Bortolami, Alex Brown and Will James resulted in Pendlebury missing out on regular first team action but his undoubted skill and his competitive desire mean he still has a bright career ahead of him.

In total he made 25 appearances for Gloucester which included appearing for the side in the Heineken Cup.
