Year 6 boys Ollie, Josh F and Zac P were nominated by Gayhurst to try out for the Prep Schools’ Lions Under 11 District football trials last Sunday.
The event took place at King Edwards School in Witley, Surrey, with more than 240 boys participating. From the trial 16 boys were selected for the A squad and around 50 boys were chosen for the development squad.
Amongst stiff competition Ollie, Josh and Zac obviously impressed the selectors and were thrilled to find out this week that they have all been selected for the development squad and will join the A squad at the Gothia World Youth Cup in Gothenburg Sweden in July 2020.
The Opening Ceremony is expected to be attended by more than 52,000 people and our boys will be representing England amongst over 80 countries. No pressure boys!!
What a fantastic opportunity for them. Come on England!
Good luck to Robbie B who will be trialling for a goalkeeping spot in November for the same squad
