The following letter was sent to Cowley’s Principal, Mr Sheeran, regarding a Cowley student, Joe Spencer.
TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN
As the Head Coach of Orrell Rugby Union u14’s, I wanted to pass on my feedback to Standish High School following on from a fantastic Lancashire Plate Final win on Sunday 10th April. Your school provided Joe Spencer who played in the final, backing up from a tough Rugby League Game for Blackbrook ARLFC in the morning.
Throughout the year he has played with pride, but more importantly has represented the Club, himself and the School with distinction earning plaudits from opposition coaches and parents along the way.
What makes the victory all the more astonishing is this was the first season that the team had entered the Lancashire Cup, and to win the cup from Division 4 is remarkable. I am not sure if he can be ‘recognised’ in away way by school, but he truly deserve it, not just for his rugby ability but his outstanding conduct.
