Demi is the second girl Chwarae Teg winner this season, the other being Leisa Williams of Ysgol Rhosybol in Anglesey, demonstrating the ever increasing number of girls playing rugby as well as their overall enthusiasm to the game.
School Coach David Thomas and Club coach Mal Davies are overwhelmed by Demi's approach to her sport both confirming that she is a positive, determined young lady who is an inspiration to any young girl playing rugby.
When training sessions are held whether at school or in the club, she helps in a number of ways which sums up her tremendous personality.
A unique fact for Demi is that such is her popularity amongst her club side, which incidentally, is all boys apart from her, she was unanimously voted captain of Beddau Under 11's this season, a first for the club.
Demi's spirits could have been dampened when, along with 7 of her team-mates, she was sent for trials with Pontypridd District Under 11's, being the only one to miss out. A bitter blow in such circumstances but Demi has shown even more determination to general team affairs since.
Sarah O'Rafferty, Sponsorship Manager at Zurich said "Congratulations to
Demi, she's proved herself to be a great role model in rugby at a very young age. She's been elected the first female captain of Beddau Under 11's and now she's a Chwarae Teg award winner too."
Pictured with Demi receiving her award is Harry Bate of Zurich Municipal and
Anthony Clement of the Dragons Rugby Trust. A good week all around for Beddau, with former favourite Gareth Wyatt of Pontypridd fame being awarded the Chwarae Teg Senior award for January last week.
