Double Cap for Laurie
- Posted by: pembscollegesuperadmin
Pembrokeshire College sports student, Laurie Haworth, was celebrating last week after playing twice for Wales in just four days.
Friday 10 January saw Laurie make his debut for Wales’ Under-18s Schoolboys and then on Monday he played his first game for the Welsh Colleges. As both Wales teams defeated Australia’s Under-19s Laurie was thrilled to be on the winning side and pick-up his first two international caps.
Laurie, who plays for the Haverfordwest Academy at Pembrokeshire College, as well as Camrose AFC, faced the Australian touring side at Llanwern High School in Newport on Friday where, despite being up against an older and physically stronger team, they won the match 3-2 in front of a big crowd and the Welsh Minister for Sport, AM John Griffiths.
Following the game Laurie commented: “It was amazing to represent Wales and an incredible experience to play with, and against, such talented players. I was really proud to be there.”
Then on Monday, Laurie was called on as a substitute in the Welsh Colleges 3-1 victory against the same opposition but this time at Cambrian and Clydach’s ground. Laurie was joined in this game by fellow College student Jack Britton.
Laurie is now hoping to feature in the Wales squads’ line-up who will be playing against English Independent Schools on February 9, the Republic of Ireland on March 6, England on March 14, Scotland on March 21 and finally Northern Ireland on April 16.
