Rugby: Henry Williams appointed Club Captain at Bangor University

A former Rydal Penrhos pupil and aspiring rugby star has been appointed to a prominent leadership position within his university side.

Henry Williams, who left the school in 2016, was named as Club Captain of Men’s Rugby Union and Athletic Union Events Officer at Bangor University recently, further highlighting the evidence of his overall influence during his time at the further education establishment.

The 20-year-old, who is the brother of former Head Girl and 2018 leaver Olivia Williams, has been an influential figure within the university squad since enrolling, and his performances on the pitch have been matched by his ability to lead and organise a squad littered with talent.

Another former pupil has also been given a significant role within the set-up, with Nick Dundee given the responsibility of Fixture Secretary ahead of a busy campaign for the group.

Dundee was part of the Rydal Penrhos Rugby Academy that is run in partnership with RGC and the Welsh Rugby Union, and he made a number of appearances for the Gogs’ U18 side during a hugely successful time for the youth set-up.

He has been turning out this season for Llandudno and has contributed significantly to their outstanding start to the campaign, which has seen them go unbeaten to head the WRU National League Division One North standings.

Director of Sport Allen Boyd, said: “We are always delighted to hear of our former standout athletes continuing to make an impact at their respective universities, and congratulations go to Henry and Nick on their respective appointments.

“We strive to ensure that each pupil under our care at Rydal Penrhos receives the right foundations from which to build a successful life both in and out of a sporting environment, and it is great to see even more examples of this from two fine and very talented young men.”
