Football: Bede’s Alumni Represent England


Talented Footballers and Bede's alumni James Norwood and Solomon March are now representing the country at England C and U21 level respectively.

James, who has carried on his good form for Forest Green Rovers this season, has maintained his selection for the England C squad for their recent tour and game in Slovakia and Hungary.


He has been ever-present this season for England C and hopes to be successful in the autumn tournament fixtures when the new season gets up and running again.

Let's hope he helps England C's to be more successful than our senior squad in the World Cup!

Brighton and Hove Albion's Solly March meanwhile earned his first England call-up for Gareth Southgate's under-21's in the recent European Championship qualifier against Wales and an international tournament in Toulon.


Solly jetted off with the squad to face an eclectic mix of opponents including Brazil, South Korea and Columbia.

He too will be hoping to carry on his good form from this year, where he became a regular with Brighton and Hove Albion.


We will all be keeping a close eye on his progress and look forward to see him back at Bede's very soon!
