Elite Scouting Partner - Budge Pountney

Often the word ‘legend’ is over used in sport, but we are honoured to have one join us as an ‘Elite’ Scout… 

Welcome Budge Pountney. Ex Scotland captain, 31 caps, 5 Nations champion, Hall of Fame Inductee and European Champion with Northampton where he played over 215 times. Following retirement Budge spent 2 years as the Director of Rugby at Northampton Saints and 2 years as Director of Rugby at Marlborough College, before taking up the position as Head of Rugby Development at Regent House in Newtownards - one of FirstPoint USA’s partner schools. Budge says, “We have an ongoing partnership with FirstPoint at Regent House, so I’ve seen at first hand the excellent support work they provide to staff, students, and parents. When I was asked if I’d like to become one of their ‘Elite’ scouts, I didn’t hesitate”. Budge goes on to say, “I’m actively involved in coaching sport outside of Regent House and this appointment gives me the opportunity to bring the FirstPoint proposition to the young boys and girls that I come in contact with in North Downs and Ards”.

Dean Kelbrick Head of Scouting and Partnership says. “It’s an honour to have a former Scotland Captain on our Elite Scout team. Budge is a fantastic role model and ambassador for FirstPoint, with a wealth of experience across a number of various sporting areas. I’ve seen at first hand his passion for sport and education and look forward to working with him outside of Regent House”.
