A talented young cricketer at Rydal Penrhos is hoping to make a significant impact with a regional side during the upcoming season.
Arran Sen, a Year 8 pupil at the school, was scheduled to turn out for Colwyn Bay’s 2nd XI in their opening friendly Abergele on Sunday, April 7, but it was called-off due to adverse weather.
The sports scholar will be looking to cement a regular place within the second unit this summer, with the side securing promotion to the Liverpool and District 2nd XI Premier Division last season.
This will be his second campaign with the Bay set-up, with Arran turning out with the 3rd XI senior side last term and also played a starring role for their U13 and U15 squads.
He was awarded the U13 Coaches’ Award for his exceptional overall contribution to the side at their end of season awards, and Arran has been honing his skills considerably as part of Rydal Penrhos’ winter nets programme.
The all-rounder also made a landmark trip to India with the Lancashire U13 squad earlier this year, which he described as “an unforgettable experience”.
Director of Sport Allen Boyd, said: “Arran has been working hard throughout the off-season and hopefully this will be rewarded with some outstanding performances in the weeks and months ahead.
“He is a supremely gifted individual who is always striving to be better, and Arran has benefitted enormously from our sports scholarship programme here at Rydal Penrhos and the coaching he receives at Colwyn Bay.”
