Char­lie tipped for the top by Eng­land leg­end

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Sport -

A LIN­COLNSHIRe young­ster has been tipped for fu­ture suc­cess by eng­land leg­end Lawrence Dal­laglio fol­low­ing a once-in-a-life­time ex­clu­sive train­ing ses­sion un­der the watch­ful eye of the for­mer eng­land cap­tain. Char­lie Pen­rose-Toms, from Stam­ford, joined 100 fel­low rugby play­ers aged be­tween six and 18 at Twick­en­ham for the Sa­cla’ Na­tional Train­ing Day, cour­tesy of the Ital­ian Pesto Pi­o­neers, and the eng­land great was im­pressed by what he saw. Dal­laglio said: “The qual­ity of rugby on dis­play to­day has been fan­tas­tic and I’m sure all of the lads will go on to be suc­cess­ful in the game. I hope that I have been able to pass on some of the skills re­quired to reach the very top of the game as well as the core val­ues of rugby – in­clud­ing re­spect, en­joy­ment, dis­ci­pline, sports­man­ship and teamwork.” Char­lie (9), who plays for Stam­ford, was over­joyed at the ex­pe­ri­ence. He said: “The whole day at Twick­en­ham was ab­so­lutely amaz­ing and I re­ally en­joyed it. It was pretty cool to go into the eng­land dress­ing rooms as well and Lawrence Dal­laglio gave us so many good tips. It will be a day that I will never for­get.” Sa­cla’, the Ital­ian Pesto Pi­o­neers, re­cently an­nounced a ground break­ing part­ner­ship with the Rugby Foot­ball Union to sup­port over 100 grass roots fes­ti­vals in the UK.
