Sean (U13 Athletic)
The winner Jack Petchey Achievement Award for February 2019 is Sean from U16 Valiants
Sean has been with me for 3 years and we are his first ever team, Sean always had the ability but in the early years lacked the fitness to hold down a place in the team and only played small amounts to start with but with each season Sean has progressed incredibly and has become fitter and fitter through his own determination and is an integral part of the team and now my vice- captain.
Sean never complained when his playing time was much less and just got on with the task of improving himself but remained the most friendly likeable lad in the squad. Sean is incredibly popular with the whole squad thanks largely to his good nature and willingness to always help others around him. Sean always helps to pack up equipment at training and match days and always encourages those around him.
Sean this week along with my own son Jack have raised a concern about one their friends mental health at their school, prompting the parents to be called in and the school police officer calling me to praise both Sean and Jack. I am incredibly proud of both Sean and Jack for being so caring of their friend and dealing with this in such a mature way.
I cannot recommend Sean highly enough for a Jack Petchey award.”
Well done Sean from all at Junior Reds
