Academy student Hugh Cullum says “representing England is an honour” after his first win with the English Schools FA U18 squad against RAF.
Cullum was named in the starting XI as centre back for The English School FA U18 opening match against RAF last month. He said: “To play my first ever game representing my country was an honour and an experience I will never forget. To play against the RAF, which I knew were going to be physically fit, but we won 4-1 so it's a good start for me and my team to build on.”
Upon arriving to the game, Hugh was presented with his England shirt and training gear, a memory and experience he said will live with him forever.
He continued: “Representing my country will always stick with me and something I will be proud of and even now I’m still over the moon to be a part of it. I can’t wait to keep playing and enjoying myself.”
Hugh will take part in two more friendlies in the upcoming weeks against Crystal Palace U18 and ISFA. Following these games, Hugh will then compete in the Centenary Shield that will include fixtures against Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales and the Republic of Ireland.
