Real Rugby Hero

Congratulations to PE teacher Mr Marshall who has been presented with a Natwest Real Rugby Hero award at a special awards ceremony at Twickenham.

He spent the day at Twickenham at the invitation of the RFU Schools’ President, watching the U15s and U18s Schools’ Cup Finals in the Royal Box. The Natwest Real Rugby Heroes represent all those working behind the scenes in school and college rugby. He was one of ten who were recognised from over fifty nominations, enjoying a pitch-side presentation of his award between the two matches. He was presented with his award in recognition of over ten years work in both schools rugby and the East Riding Merit League. He said ‘It was a pleasure to receive this award in recognition of my work in school. I’d also like to thank all the other staff who work with me tirelessly to help us achieve so many opportunities for our students, and especially the support we receive from Hullensians RUFC and Cottingham Tigers RLFC as they're a big part of what we do.’
