Rebecca Trew and William Trew have been celebrating this month following their call-ups to play football for Cornwall.
Rebecca, 13, has been selected for the first time to represent the Under 14 Girls team and will now be involved in a programme of games and training sessions over the coming year.
William, Rebecca’s older brother, has been selected to play for the Cornwall Under 18’s team; a tremendous achievement considering that William is only 15 years old. William, who played against the youth academies of Manchester United, Aston Villa and Liverpool earlier this year, said:
“I went to the Under 18 Cornwall trials to give it my best shot and ended up getting selected.”
Cornwall’s Under 14 Girls next face Dorset at home and the Under 18’s Boys team are set to head north to play Gloucester away.
