Joseph Arrowsmith, one of our U18 Colts (now making a ripple in Senior Teams)has successfully completed trials with England Colleges.
Following Sunday's final trial game Joe has nailed down the starting 7 shirt for forthcoming games, and will be representing England U19 Colleges whilst playing for Sunderland RFC.
This is a massive achievement for Joe and sends a message to all of our young players and their coaches as to what can be achieved through dedication, hard work, sensible lifestyle (no joke) and a disciplined determined approach to training and playing the game.
In addittion to Sunderland RFC Joe has enjoyed training and playing with several of his Colts team mates at East Durham College (Academy)this season with whom we have a club link. (Separate write up within EDC web pages).
Great work and Joe, you are a credit to yourself; your family, our club and the game.
