A pair of Preparatory School pupils have been appointed Cricket and Athletics captains for the forthcoming season.
The announcement was made at Rydal Penrhos’ weekly Celebration Assembly on Friday, May 5, with Year 6 pupil George Watkins given the last of leading the school’s cricketers throughout the term.
Fellow Year 6 classmate Jonathan Osbourne has been chosen by Head of Boys’ Games Jamie McLeod to skipper the Athletics side.
The duo bring with them plenty of experience to their roles, with George also a part of the set-up at Mochdre Cricket Club, and played last season at the Swalec Stadium in Cardiff.
Sprint king Jonathan was recently awarded a sports scholarship to the senior school, and has enjoyed a promising young career to date, which includes success at the North Wales Indoor Championships.
Prep School head Roger McDuff, said: “Congratulations to both George and Jonathan, who are going to bring a great deal to their captaincy roles.
“They are both very talented and the extra responsibility of leading their fellow pupils will no doubt bring out the very best in them.”
