Another hot young Cornish prospect, back rower Neil Stanleick from St Just, has joined the Cornish Pirates Player Development Foundation (PDF)
He has developed through the ranks of the Pirates youth section alongside fellow squad members Max Bodilly, Tom Hendrickson and Tyler Gendall
Educated at Cape Cornwall School, he has played for Truro College, St. Just, St. Ives, Camborne and Cornwall to under 20s.
“Neil is another bright prospect to come out of last season’s very successful Cornwall under 20s team."
Said Ian Davies Director of Rugby.
"He has shown up well during our pre-season and will no doubt continue to develop over this season.”
The PDF has become instrumental in developing the senior squad from within and the furthering the aim to have a majority of Cornish players in the squad.
We hope that even more will not only see the fruits of the PDF, but the rationale in the Cornish Pirates championing this route for young talent.
Fundraising for the PDF is ongoing and your contribution will be invaluable.
