Top coach and top man Paul Jenkins was awarded ‘Wales Sports Coach to the Disabled’ at an awards ceremony in Cardiff last night. Jinx is well known to everyone in wheelchair rugby and has coached the Pirates for over ten years. Along with Mike Spence, he was one half of the coaching duo who coached the GB Invictus team to a gold medal at this year’s Invictus Games. Congratulations to Jinx on a fantastic achievement and to his lovely wife Jayne for all the support she gives Jinx in his coaching role. Jinx will be the lead coach for the military programme when it restarts in the new year. Well done and thank you Jinx!
Congratulations also go to Ieuan Coombes of the Pirates who was nominated for his community volunteer work. Unfortunately Ieuan was unlucky to not win the award but it was a great achievement nonetheless for him to be in the final 3.
