Edinburgh Rugby have appointed Douglas Struth as their new managing director.

He moves from his current post as the SRU’s head of legal to fill the role vacated when Jonny Petrie left to become CEO of Ulster at the start of the year.

Struth said: “It is a real privilege for me to be appointed as managing director of Edinburgh Rugby. As a long-time season ticket member I care passionately about the club and have done for many years.

“Through my current role, I have developed first-hand knowledge of the club and a real understanding of what its objectives are and what it wants to progress from a business, stakeholder and operations perspective.

“I now look forward to applying all of that as managing director and working with our supporters, partners and the whole team at Edinburgh Rugby to build on what has been achieved so far and to take the club forward. I cannot wait to get started.”

SRU chief operating officer Dominic McKay said: “We wanted someone who understood the important role of the club in the city and how, working with Scottish Rugby, we could continue building on the proactive work currently under way.

“Having worked closely with Doug, I know he is passionate about rugby in Edinburgh and it is a positive step to have someone develop within the organisation to the extent that this role is now one they are well equipped to step into.”

Originally from Edinburgh, Struth trained as lawyer
