County call-ups for rugby players
Three 5th Form pupils have been selected to play for the U16 Shropshire Rugby Squad. Henry Wilson, Zak Willer and Dan Counter attended two trials sessions that involved over 40 boys at Telford Rugby Club. They will now join up with the rest of the squad and train fortnightly. As a result, they will automatically be put forward for next season's U18 Shropshire Rugby Squad.
Zak and Dan have also been put forward to attend trials for the U16 North Midlands Rugby Squad. Zak has already received his invitation and should they be selected, they will play against North Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire and Warwickshire.
Rugby coach Joshua Tsang commented, "We are incredibly proud of Henry, Zak and Dan for being selected to play representative rugby at this stage in the season. This is a testament of their attitude, commitment and application, all of which have been excellent. There is certainly and exciting future ahead for all three boys."
