Head of Sport's Rugby Contribution Recognised

Mr Paul Fernside, the Boys’ Division Head of Sport and Master in Charge of Rugby, travelled to Twickenham to attend the recent England v Argentina International as a guest of Mitsubushi and the RFU.

He had been nominated to receive an award from the Mitsubishi Motors Volunteer Recognition Programme for his contributions to rugby union.

He was put forward by John Morgan, who said: “Paul Fernside has made an enormous contribution to Lancashire Schools rugby over the last two decades. As Head of Sport at Bolton School, Paul has overseen the development of rugby at the school providing opportunities for many boys to play against the strongest rugby playing schools in the North of England each week. He has also helped develop rugby in the local schools, regularly providing support and facilities for them to play at Bolton School. His valuable influence also extends to Lancashire Schools where he held the role of Chairman for four years, and was responsible for running the County inter schools cup competitions for many years.”

Mr Fernside said that it was a great honour to represent the school on the day, and he was delighted to combine watching England beating Argentina with receiving his award after the nomination from his county.
