Ryan Winfield - Sports Personality of the Year

The Sports Personality of the Year for 2015-16 at saltash.net community school is Ryan Winfield. Now studying for his A Levels in the 6th Form, Ryan’s outstanding contribution to PE and games at the school resulted in his nomination for the Pip Miller Memorial Award, donated by ex-governor, Ken Martin in memory of his wife.

Head of PE, Rob Hawkins, explained the reasons why Ryan had been selected, saying:

“This young man has really impressed us over the last 5 years at saltash.net with his attitude, efforts and achievements. He has captained the school team in his year group for all five years winning 5 East Cornwall championships, 3 county championships and reaching the last 32 of the national cup on two occasions.

“As a captain and leader he is vocal and demands high standards. He is always positive and encourages his team mates. He leads by example, giving everything on the pitch, a superb role model of how a footballer should behave. He is brave as well; in the County final against Helston, a clash of heads whilst competing for a high ball, split his head open and required a visit to hospital which meant he missed all the team celebrations at the end of the game. Hopefully this award will make up for that in some way.”

It's only fair to share...
