Lewis selected for 2014 England Junior squad

Again, we can report the progress of the Leagues' star junior player, Lewis Fletcher, who attended an England Juniors coaching day two weeks before Christmas, and from the countrys' 28 junior players who attended, he has been subsequently selected in the first 14 players that make up this coming seasons England Junior squad, making this his third season of being involved at England international level.

Lewis capped last season by captaining the England Juniors at the World Championships in France, when the team won 3 out of their 7 matches, including a strength-sapping 2.5 hour knock-out match versus Slovakia, that England eventually won 13-12.

He will now undergo further coaching days as the EPA develops the players ready for more international duty later in the season, which could include the OJM International Invite tournament in Nieuweggin, Holland during Easter, the International Triples in Kayl, Luxembourg usually in July and possible selection into the England Junior team to compete at the 2014 European Junior Championships due to be held in Bassens, France in early November.

Good luck and fingers crossed....
