Two Myerscough College football students are celebrating after being called up to the English Colleges’ FA National squad.

Teenagers Joe Noblet, from Preston and team mate Jack Williams , have been named in the 21 man party for a series of under-19 games between now and the end of the season after impressing in trials.

The duo, who are both 17, are studying Level Three BTECs in football studies at the Bilsborrow College and could now face opposition from around the world with fixtures scheduled against sides from Wales, Scotland and Australia, as well as the prestigious ‘Roma Caput Mundi’ tournament in Italy, where the best players from across Europe represent their countries at under 19 level.

Myerscough’s football development centre manager, Phil Brown, said: “Representing England College’s is an outstanding achievement for Joey and Jack and I’m pleased that they are the latest in a long line of Myerscough students to be selected.”
