A Preparatory School rugby star has been rewarded for a fine season with a special award.
Max Cowen-Wright, a Year 6 pupil at Rydal Penrhos, was one of the big winners at Mold Rugby Club’s presentation evening, which took place earlier this month.
The 11-year-old has turned in a number of impressive individual displays during a busy campaign with the U11 side, and he was acknowledged for his efforts with the Players’ Player of the Season for a second successive year.
It has been another memorable few months for aspiring star, who played a huge role in Rydal Penrhos' victory over Colwyn Bay in the Cooper Cup, while also aiding the team’s cause in a number of fixtures across North Wales, Cheshire and the North West.
He has developed his game significantly under the guidance of dedicated coaching staff and the school, and Max has also shone in his transition to the Rugby 7s discipline with the newly formed U11 side.
Head of Boys’ Games Jamie McLeod, said: “Max has been a very consistent performer who was at the heartbeat of every achievement both here at Rydal Penrhos and for his local side, and it was no surprise to hear him claiming an award for a truly exceptional season.
“He has a great passion for the game and his willingness to learn and get better is matched by his supreme talent, and if he continues to progress at his current rate then the sky is the limit in terms of what he can achieve in the future.”
