Former Alvechurch schoolboy Josh Poole, of Rowney Green, was picked to play for the England Schools Under 18s Centenary Shield match against Wales.

Josh (right), who started his football career with Alvechurch Lions, made the team after a weekend trial at Lilleshall National Sports Centre.

He attends Hartpury College in Gloucester, where he’s studying a Diploma in Sport, and comes home at weekends to his part-time job at KFC at Hopwood Services. Wales won the match, played in Lincoln last month, 4-1.
