Mylo wins Groundsman award

06/12/2013

JRFC Head Groundsman, Myles Landick won a top award last night
at the Institiute of Groundsmanship awards ceremony in
Coventry.

Myles, who is also a member of the Jersey 1st team squad,
currently working his way back to full fitness after a
serious knee injury, was nominated for the Professional Rugby
Union Groundsman of the Year award. He then found himself on a
final short list of two, up against the Head Groundsman from
Premiership side, Worcester Warriors, but was the man chosen as the
winner.

A representative from the IOG visited Jersey recently to inspect
the pitches and to ask a few more questions about the type of
machinery used and the annual budget apportioned to working on the
JRFC grounds.

Myles said, "To be honest when I was told that I had been
shortlisted, I didn't think that I stood a chance, especially when
I knew who I was up against. Having said that, apart from
inspecting the pitches, the judges take a number of other factors
into consideration including how we apportion our budget, and maybe
that worked in my favour."

Landick thanked his father, Steve for help and guidance over the
last few years; "Dad has been a real inspiration, and it has been
fantastic to have a job where I can combine learning a trade
alongside training and playing for the Island".
