Cadet Zack Orrell from 2458 (Shipley & Baildon) Squadron ATC recently went and played rugby for South and West Yorkshire Wing at RAF Linton On-Ouse. While the wing came 4th, Cadet Orrell excelled in his team, even managing to win player of the tournament. The abilities he showed allowed him to be selected to trial for the regional team. For this opportunity Cadet Orrell said “To be honoured in such a way for my rugby performance is truly humbling, I’m incredibly gracious for this opportunity”.
