Career details:

Second row Jonathan Pendlebury was a product of the Academy system at the club, forcing his way into the first team squad for the pre-season matches at Bridgend and Cardiff at the start of the 2002/2003 season. Indeed, he made his first appearance in a Bath Rugby first team jersey in the 14-15 defeat at the Brewery Field, Bridgend, and played a second time a week later as a 70th minute replacement for Andy Beattie in the 10-12 loss to Cardiff. No stranger to top quality rugby, Jonathan had an exceptional season at under-19 level in 2001/2002, making seven appearances for England under-19, including matches against New Zealand Schools and a 12-0 won over Wales Schools at Twickenham. After appearing against Ireland and France in the under-19 version of the Six Nations (both victories), Jonathan was selected for the FIRA under-19 Championship, being awarded the honour of captaining his country to an opening victory against Romania. He went on to play against Italy (as a replacement) and Scotland in that tournament. He was another member of the side that won the under-19 National Cup in Northampton in 2002. Jonathan left the club in 2003 to sign for newly promoted Rotherham Titans. Subsequently he revived his career at Gloucester.

At the time of writing he is the Manager of the Wasps Academy.
