Diss Youth aiming high

5 years ago By Simon Randon

Several young Diss players have been selected to play for their county recently.

Charlie Pask, Matt Warren, Henry Baldwin, Harry Stenton and Richard Gallacher have all been selected to play for the Eastern Counties Under 17 side. This is a feather in the cap not only for the players but for the success of the youth set up at Diss.

Another Diss player has obtained a coveted place at the Leicester Tigers Academy. Kain Rix, who plays at no.7 openside flanker, has played at Diss from the Under 9’s right through to U16’s. as well as playing for Diss High School, he was recently selected for the Under 16 squad for England. After attending Leicester’s Elite Player Development Group in Norfolk he has now won a place at the Academy, the next step in his quest to becoming a professional player following in the footsteps of former Diss youth player, Dan Hipkiss who played at Leicester, and is now at Bath, he won 13 caps for England including playing in the 2007 World Cup Final.
