Belmont pupils amongst the most talented footballers

14 October 2020

Huge congratulations to Sam and Coco in Year 6 who have been awarded a place in The Prep Schools' Lions U11 football team and to Eddie, also in Year 6, who has made the development squad.

The Lions' programme is for the most talented independent school footballers across Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire, Oxfordshire and Surrey.  As part of their development, the Prep Schools' Lions will compete in matches against academies, district teams and have the opportunity to represent England in the Gothia World Youth Cup.

Mr Cotton, Director of Sport, says "We are immensely proud of Sam, Coco and Eddie.  With 250 boys taking part in the boys' trials and a similar number trying for the girls team, we know they fought off stiff competition to be selected for their respective teams.  It is an outstanding achievement by these individuals."
