Lewis Moody MBE

Former England Rugby Captain and World Cup Winner Lewis Moody MBE is the latest elite sportsperson to visit Feltonfleet, following in the footsteps of Team GB Olympic Gold Medallists, Rower Alex Gregory MBE and Hockey players Georgie Twigg MBE and Susannah Townsend MBE. 

Lewis Moody will meet pupils from Feltonfleet’s 1st Teams when he attends as Guest of Honour and Keynote Speaker at the Annual Sports Review of the Year and Awards Dinner to be held this Friday 7th June.

With 71 caps for his country and a host of accolades to his name, including three Lions caps, a World Cup Winner’s Medal, two Six Nations titles, seven Premiership triumphs and two Heineken Cup wins, this former England Captain is a true rugby world legend and an inspiration for our aspiring young sportsmen and women.

Having retired from rugby in 2012, Lewis will share some of his experiences and offer words of advice in his closing speech following the presentation of Feltonfleet’s Sports Awards for the year.  The invited audience includes pupils from Year 7 and 8 who have represented the school at 1st Team level this year, along with their proud parents and staff.  Several of the award recipients have won Sports Scholarships to their chosen Senior Schools.

Ed Smith, Director of Sport, commented, "Having inspirational athletes, like Lewis, take part in our Sporting Review of the Year is fantastic. He is a genuine role model to all children, not only for his sporting performances, but also for his incredible charity work". 

 We look forward to a wonderful evening.
