Rugby: End of season awards and colours presented at Sports Dinner

A number of rugby players at Rydal Penrhos have been rewarded for their exploits throughout the season at a special event.

The group were presented with their respective accolades from former pupil and special guest speaker Andrew Fenby at Rydal Penrhos’ annual Sports Awards Dinner prior to the half term break.

Upper Sixth Form pupil Joe Gardener enjoyed a superb campaign within the traditional and sevens disciplines and received the Player of the Year honour, with Eddie Farrell’s outstanding development under the guidance of the school’s dedicated coaching staff securing the Most Improved Player of the Year accolade.

There was further success for Joe, who was presented with Full Colours alongside Morphy Cup for Boys’ Sport winner Ewan Luke and RGC U16 squad member Fin Hare.

Rounding off the distinctions were George Smith-Edwards and Joe Morrow, who attained Half Colours as a result of their respective performances and overall influence on the senior side.

Director of Sport Allen Boyd, said: “It has been a fantastic season for our rugby programme and we have proven time and time again that we can more than mix it with some of the most high-profile schools across the North West.

“Each award recipient contributed a tremendous amount to this success and can look back on their accomplishments with an enormous sense of pride.

“Thank you to all the staff who coached teams this year; Mr Trickey, Mr Brown, Mr Leach, Mr Tuck, Mr Sutton and Mr Leach.”
