Co­leg Me­nai stu­dents to rep­re­sent Wales in Rome tour­na­ment

Bangor Mail - - SPORT -

TWO stu­dents from Co­leg Me­nai have re­cently been se­lected to rep­re­sent Welsh Col­leges un­der-18s at this month’s Roma Ca­put Mundi In­vi­ta­tional Tour­na­ment in the re­gion of Lazio in Italy.

Striker Osian Jones from Llan­fair­p­wll and de­fender Harri Hughes from Pwll­heli are both in their sec­ond year of the BTEC Level 3 Ex­tended Diploma Sport (Per­for­mance and Ex­cel­lence) course.

Their lec­turer, for­mer pro­fes­sional foot­baller Marc Lloyd Wil­liams, will ac­com­pany the squad as team man­ager.

Wil­liams said: “Osian and Harri have worked con­sis­tently hard for the past 18 months and im­proved as play­ers.

“They thor­oughly de­serve their se­lec­tion fol­low­ing their per­for­mances dur­ing the trial process of the past few months and they have shown a great at­ti­tude, de­sire and com­mit­ment to suc­ceed.”

He added: “I am proud of their achieve­ments to date.

“This is the fourth year we’ve been in­vited to play in the tour­na­ment and it is a fan­tas­tic ex­pe­ri­ence for the play­ers and staff to pit their wits against some great teams.

“It’s a tough sched­ule but one both Harri and Osian will learn and ben­e­fit from.”
