Falmouth footballer's pride at playing for England
A footballer from Cornwall has spoken of his ‘great experience’ after representing England Colleges against Australia this week.
Harry Evans, 18, from Mylor Bridge, played 45 minutes for the Colleges’ side as they ran out 3-2 winners at Sutton Coldfield.
The teenager, who plays Carlsberg South West Peninsula League football for Falmouth Town, was selected out of hundreds of college students across the country to be a part of this season’s 22-man squad.
And after playing in Monday’s international in the West Midlands, the Truro College student revealed his pride at representing his country.
He said: “It was a great experience to represent my country and wear the three lions on my shirt and play against another country such as Australia.
“A big thanks to Truro College for supporting me and it’s nice to see the hard work starting to pay off. Also, a big thanks to my parents for supporting me as well.”
