As many of you sit freezing and watching the snow fall, We have some wonderful news from last weekend.
One of our Youngsters, Tom Knight Owen, having played for Hampshire along with many other Trojans was at trials playing for the London and South East Division Counties under 18s. The L&SE team had a great weekend at Stourbridge, beating both the South West and the Midlands and North teams.
The fantastic result is that he has now been selected as part of the England Counties under 18 squad. For those that don't know "England Counties" is the highest level possible for players that are not members of the big regional academies - truly an England team.
So Tom will be in the squad to face an Ireland under 18 team over Easter.
This is an amazing achievement for Tom but also reflects the time and dedication not only of Tom but also his family and all of the Coaches he has had at school, county and, of course, Trojans.
We all wish him the very best at Easter and are sure he will very proud to pull on that England shirt. Certainly everyone involved in his career to date will be very proud of him. We at Trojans are proud of all of our players but especially so when they have such great success.
CONGRATULATIONS to Tom from all at Trojans! We know that your family could not be prouder of you.
