Busy and talented sportsman Ellis has been celebrating a haul of trophies and hitting the highs in rugby and boxing.
The Year Seven pupil plays in the No 7 half-back position for the U12s at St Cuthbert’s ARLFC.
He has recently been presented with awards for the top Tackler of the Season (over 200 tackles), Parents’ Player of the Year, Players’ Player of the Year and the Man of Steel, by this club.
As well as training twice a week and playing rugby at the weekend, Ellis also is a member of Leigh Boxing Club, training twice a week there as well.
Ellis’ rugby team introduced him to boxing when they started combining rugby with boxing and gym work as part of their training.
Ellis recently received a medal at the Tameside Elite Boxing competition.
