A talented Preparatory School rugby star has been handed a prominent leadership position ahead of the new season.
Cieran Milligan, a Year 6 pupil at Rydal Penrhos, was appointed the overall Prep School captain by Head of Boys’ Games Jamie McLeod ahead of a busy series of fixtures following the Christmas break.
The 11-year-old is a multi-talented individual who is thriving both academically and across various sports under the guidance and support of dedicated staff at the school, and this is the latest in a series of notable accolades for a pupil with an enormous amount of potential.
He was recently selected to the North East Wales Regional Schools’ U11 squad after impressing considerably during a trial period that lasted three weeks, and Cieran has also been making his presence felt within the Colwyn Bay youth set-up to further enhance his overall development.
Cieran will now be tasked with leading Rydal Penrhos to another successful campaign, which will see them look to secure the prestigious Cooper Cup for a fifth consecutive year against their Bay counterparts.
In addition to his rugby exploits, the Deputy Head Boy is also a member of the Cricket Wales Regional Performance Pathway and is based at their northern hub at Rydal Penrhos.
Mr McLeod, said: Cieran is not only very driven on the field, but he has proven to be an outstanding young leader and role model to younger members of the school community.
“He has all the right character traits to thrive in the role of rugby captain and I wish him well with his efforts.”
