Joe holds the 'Keyes' to the future
Just when Brentwood Elvers RLFC thought that every accolade that could be adorned on them had now been bestowed after a brilliant season for the Junior Rugby League club, news filtered through this week of the most important recognition ever gained by one of the club's players.
The London Junior League's top club for 2010 are delighted to announce that U14s captain, and London Junior League player of the Year for 2010, Joe Keyes has been called up to the England Youth National Squad. This is the first time an Elvers player has gained a place in a national squad at any age group.
Joe will now join up with players from around the country, most of whom are from the game's heartland areas in the North. Once he has undertaken his medical, Joe will potentially line up for England Youth in internationals against Wales and France in the New Year.
Dave Elliott, National Development Coach said, "The Management and Coaching staff are looking forward to working with Joe during the forthcoming season. He is one of only 40 players nationally to be selected and this occasion provides an opportunity for him to reflect on his performances to date and the people who have supported him over the years to achieve it".
Club Secretary, Phil Abbott commented, "For Joe, this is an unbelievable achievement from which I am sure he will hugely benefit. I hope that Joe also realises that his achievements will not only be beneficial to himself, but to the Elvers club too. What greater tonic can we offer our players than the knowledge that playing international rugby league is a distinct possibility, rather than just part of the coaches' morale boosting mantra?"
