Louis Allgood Wins Jack Petchey Award
Tideway Scullers member praised for his accomplishments
Louis Allgood (Junior Men) has been chosen as the recipient of this season’s Jack Petchey Achievement Award.
The coaches at Tideway Scullers voted for Louis, noting his consistent record of attendance at training sessions which is all the more impressive given the distance he has to travel from his school.
Louis is also flexible enough to sub into both sculling and sweep crews as required. As observed by Chris Williams, his coach, “Louis has exactly the qualities we are looking for at Tideway Scullers.”
Louis was presented with his framed certificate by World Champion Polly Swann at TSS on Sunday 17 th November. Louis was also awarded a £200 grant which must be used to benefit the Junior section of the club. The current thinking is that it should be spent on catering equipment for Regattas and Heads, however, Louis will have the final say on how this award money will be spent.
The Achievement Awards are designed to acknowledge a wide range of accomplishments. It’s not just about being clever, or gifted, it’s about putting the effort in and doing your best.
