Five Princethorpe Pupils Selected For ISFA Midlands Squad
Five Princethorpe pupils have been selected for the Independent Schools Football Association’s (ISFA) U13 Midlands squad.
The Year 8 boys, Emmanuel Ravu, James Bostock, Jack McKay, Sid Penn and Jenson Lee will face regional representative teams in the ISFA U13 Regional Representative Festival that takes place next year in April at Shrewsbury School.
The boys were nominated by the College and earned the opportunity to represent their region in trials over a series of three weekends. The strength of footballing talent here at the College reflected in the Princethorpe domination of the Midlands ISFA team.
The College has a strong U13 team who are progressing well in the ISFA Trophy. The team are down to the last eight, reaching the Quarter Finals after beating Wetherby Preparatory School 4-2. They will next face Trinity School, Croydon, in late January.
Foundation Director of Sport, Lee Cassell, commented, “These boys are talented and committed. I know they will relish the opportunity to play against the best players in their age group and will be a credit to their school. This is a great opportunity to showcase their talents on an excellent pathway. We have had previous boys be part of the ISFA programme and it has only added to their footballing journey. It will be a great experience for them all.”
