Silver Spoons, Kelpies and making people feel good about themselves – Bill Faulds – #100

My guest this week is President of Falkirk RFC – Bill Faulds.

This interview was recorded in February of 2023 and we talked about Bill’s late start in the sport, reaching the heights of playing for Stewart’s Melville, a mid-career break before returning to Falkirk to win an incredible tally of league titles.

We then chat through his fundamental changes as a coach before discussing what it took to turn around a club on the brink of collapse.

There is so much in this podcast; funny stories, tales of achievement and a ton of useful takeaways  – I hope you enjoy!
