TRINITY School pupil Mofe Wilkey has been selected for the U16 England training camp following a successful trial for the London & South East side and performance at a development camp last month.
The Year 11 student, who lives in Cheam, was very happy with his selection and paid tribute to the school for their guidance.
"I am really happy to have been chosen and my school has given me great coaching that has paid off," he said.
And Trinity's head of rugby, Aaron Liffchak, commented: "I am delighted that Mofe has been chosen. He is an enormously-talented player with huge potential."
Meanwhile, U16 London & South East chairman of selectors, David Turner, said: "We are delighted for Mofe. He played an important part in London's victory over the Midlands and thoroughly deserves his place in the England Development Squad."
Meanwhile, Trinity's Sophie Foreman won the Surrey Schools Cross-Country Championships in the senior girls' category held last Saturday at Reigate Priory.
And fellow pupil Peter Chambers came third in the senior boys' category.
Foreman completed the 4.5km course in 14 minutes and 20 seconds, and the Year 12 student will now be in a prime starting position in her next two big races next month at the UK Inter-County Championships and the English Schools Cross-Country Championships.
Forman, who lives in Woldingham and is part of Tonbridge Athletics Club, has won numerous competitions at local and regional level.
She has also represented England in the combined U20 and U17 McCain Cross-Country Challenge Series where she came first in the U17s.
