23rd September 2009 <b>International</b> call up for Rupert

Most 17 year olds spend their summer holidays relaxing with friends or working extra hours for their weekend job, not Rupert. Rupert Charles, currently studying Wood Occupations Level 2, has been training hard to earn a place on the England under 20 Roller Hockey team. Following several intense sessions he was spotted by England coach Carlos Amaral who was visibly impressed resulting in him selecting Rupert as part of the ten person squad.

Rupert Charles, currently studying Wood Occupations Level 2, has been training hard to earn a place on the England under 20 Roller Hockey team. Following several intense sessions he was spotted by England coach Carlos Amaral who was visibly impressed resulting in him selecting Rupert as part of the ten person squad.

Rupert and the rest of the team have already competed together in friendly matches in Dusseldorf, Germany in August prior to flying out to Italy this week to take part in the World Under 20 Roller Hockey Championship. Sixteen teams from across the globe including France, USA, Portugal and Chile will be taking part in the tournament in the hope of becoming World Champions.

"Although I'm one of the youngest members of this squad I'll be looking to do my best and impress, I'm really looking forward to the competition," said Rupert.

Following the international tournament Rupert will return to playing with Halifax Roller Hockey Club who are striving to be promoted back into the Premier League.
