FOUR GLEN Innes Public School boys have tasted success at the recent North West Touch football trials and three have gained selection to play at the State Carnival in July.
On Friday May 27 Mitchell Duddy, Kaleb Hope, Harlon McLaren and Ryan MacIntyre represented the Northern New England team at the PSSA North West Touch football trials held in Armidale.
The Northern New England team, made up of Tenterfield and Glen Innes players, were noted by selectors as being the standout team on the day defeating Inverell, Armidale, Tamworth and Coonabarabran regions.
Five boys from the Northern New England team were selected for the North West team to play in the state carnival on the July 26 to 28.
Ryan Macintyre, Kaleb Hope and Harlon McLaren from Glen Innes Public School were selected as were Will Holley and Braith Clarke from Tenterfield.
Glen Innes Public School spokesperson Marianne Bower said it was an impressive effort for the Northern New England region to have so many in the North West team.
“We are very proud of the boy’s efforts and the manner in which they played on what was a very brisk winter’s day,’ she said.
“We wish them well at the State Carnival.”
