Congratulations to Blues Academy centre Aaron Martin who has been selected for the England Counties U18 squad who will play in this season’s International Triangular Festival at Hartpury College in Gloucestershire between March 28 and April 4. 

The extended squad was selected after the Divisional Festival at Loughborough University last weekend and will be trimmed after a further training session at Loughborough on March 15 to produce the final squad for the festival.

England will launch the festival on Saturday March 28 when they face a France side selected from their regional academies.  France will then meet Irish Clubs Under 18s at Hartpury on April 1 with England facing Ireland in the festival finale on Saturday April 4.

Aaron who is at Bilton School, Rugby played for Warwickshire U18s in this season’s County Championship, before being selected for the Midlands Division U18 squad which played in the Divisional Festival last weekend.

Bedford Academy Director, Denis Ormesher, said … “Aaron joined us last season as an U17 when his older brother was in the Blues Academy.   As one of our younger players last season he worked hard and has developed well over the last year. We are delighted that he has been selected for England.”
