Drew Hodgson (Year 13) has been called into the England U19 futsal squad for a summer training camp.
This call up is timely with England working towards finalising a squad for the 2019 UEFA European Championships.
Drew started playing futsal at Heworth at an extra-curricular club and stayed on at sixth form to become a member of our futsal academy. In September 2017 he signed for Newcastle Futsal Club (formerly Durham Futsal Club) and started to gain FA National League experience. In January 2018 he attended the first of a series of England Regional Talent Centre camps which has ultimately led to this opportunity. If he gets the UCAS points that he needs he will be attending Northumbria University in September where he will be able to access a futsal scholarship.
