Coleg Y Cymoedd

Sport department alumni meets Prince William

Coleg Y Cymoedd

A previous Coleg y Cymoedd Sport learner celebrated the launch of his new WRU apprenticeship with Prince William.

Connor Prankard who completed his Level 2 and Level 3 Sport qualifications at the Ystrad Mynach campus of Coleg y Cymoedd met Prince William at the launch of the Welsh Rugby Union's Coach Core apprenticeship programme.

Prince William was visiting Cardiff to launch the Welsh Rugby Union's Coach Core apprenticeship programme - and to watch Wales take on Fiji in the Rugby World Cup.

The Duke of Cambridge met 12 new apprentices and watched some rugby training at Sport Wales, before heading to the Millennium Stadium. Prince William spoke to the apprentices and joined in their training.

Coach Core was created in 2012 as part of the Olympics Legacy and aims to improve the quality and availability of sport coaching.

19 year old Connor said: "We asked him who he supported in Wales v England and he said Wales. But when we asked him who his brother supported he said we would have to ask Harry, he did talk about the rivalry they had there."
