Aged between sixteen and twenty, and drawn from rugby clubs across England, the Young Rugby Ambassadors will be part of a programme that aims to excite and engage young people in the build-up to and legacy from Rugby World Cup 2015
Chanise Beard, Will Greenway, Joe Lewis and Maizie Morgan were chosen to be Young Rugby Ambassador because they are all committed to and passionate about rugby. They were keen to take up this oppotunity and promote rugby to young people
Chanise, Will, Joe and Maizie have all been playing rugby for many years, all of them have been playing since the age of 5 and are passionate about rugby, and are great ambassadors for rugby and Drybrook RFC.
Chanise, Will, Joe and Maizie and other Young Rugby Ambassadors from across the region attended a conference at Kingsholm on
October 31 to launch this RFU initiative. Gloucester is one of ten host cities chosen to stage matches during Rugby World Cup 2015.
At the conference they took part in workshops to discuss ideas for community projects to inspire people about rugby, explored different leadership and ambassadorial styles and shared information about RWC 2015.
Club Chairman Paul Mason said;
This is a fantastic opportunity for these young ambassadors to take part in such an event. They will have the opportunity to discuss, plan and action initiatives that encourage young people to take up the sport.
