HULL YOUNGSTERS EARN ENGLAND CALL
By Matt Holden | Wednesday, 5 December 2012
Five of Hull FC’s future young stars have been given the chance to represent their country next season after earning a place in the England set-up for 2013.
Among the group selected from the club’s new under-16s and under-19s age groups are brothers Harry and Bobby Tyson-Wilson, who have been called up to the England Youth and England Academy squads respectively.
The duo have long been tipped for a bright future at the Black and Whites after being nurtured from a young age by their father Rob Wilson, who played for the club in the 90s, with stand-off Harry set to be joined in the Youth ranks by three of his Hull FC under-16s teammates.
It will see second row forwards Brad Harrison and Jordan Lane, plus hooker Brad Parker, also given their chance to impress on the international stage during planned fixtures against France and Wales next year.
Speaking to www.hullfc.com
about the news, the club’s head of youth and England Academy assistant coach Andy Last said, “This is a special opportunity for this group. Playing for your country is a huge honour and one that many players will never get to experience, but all five of them have thoroughly deserved it.
“As a club, it is our aim to help as many young players as possible make the progression from our scholarship and academy ranks through to the first team and this exciting news confirms that we are heading in the right direction.
“I’d like to wish each of the players the best of luck during their exploits for England in 2013 and hopefully we can also see them continue to improve while pulling on the Black and White of Hull FC next season.”
