Exeter Chiefs held their U15 rugby training at Penwith College on Wednesday evening in preparation for their upcoming matches against Newport Gwent Dragons, Cardiff, Worcester & Bristol culminating in the pinnacle festival held at Harrow School where they play against all the other Premiership Rugby Academies. The evening was led by Matt Jess a former Penwith College student who has played over 100 games for Exeter Chiefs and is now working with the next crop of talented players within the Academy at Chiefs. He was very impressed with the facilities on offer at Penwith College and the standard of the Cornish players hoping to be selected for this match programme.
Truro and Penwith College’s Health, Wellbeing and Sport (HWS) team have won the prestigious Active Workplace of the Year award at the recent Cornwall Sports Awards held at the Headland Hotel, Newquay. The award was presented to Health, Wellbeing and Sport Project Lead Assistant, Mark Stevens, in recognition of the success and impact of the project.
