Bishop's Stortford College Prep School pupil Jake Brown in Hertfordshire & Essex under-13 squad for Independent Schools Football Association National Festival
Jake Brown has been named in the Hertfordshire & Essex under-13 squad for the prestigious Independent Schools Football Association National Festival.
The Bishop's Stortford College Prep School pupil was selected from 40 of the region's best players during trials over two weekends at Lochinver House School in Potters Bar.
Brown, who captains the college's under-13 team and led them to IAPS National Championships glory in November, also plays for Wodson Park. His training with the Herts & Essex squad will start soon and include fixtures against academy sides from Watford and Leyton Orient.
The festival takes place at Shrewsbury School from April 4-6.
David Herd, head of prep school football, said: "Jake's football has developed phenomenally during the last two seasons.
"He leads his team-mates by setting the tempo with his high energy and work rate.
"He has deservedly earned a brilliant opportunity to showcase his talents on a national stage. Well done, Jake!"
