Lucas wins England call-up
A 12 year-old schoolboy from Tynemouth has won a call-up to the England Under 13 ice hockey squad.
Lucas Campion plays club hockey with Billingham Stars and he has been chosen for junior international honours after a rigorous five month selection process, during which time he attended trial camps at Cardiff and Sheffield.
He has been named in the final Under 13 England Ice Hockey squad and will be representing his country in Finland in April.
Proud mother Samantha said: “The dates for the games have yet to be confirmed.
“I am delighted at Lucas’s selection. He has worked very hard, relentlessly for years at club and conference level in the UK, to achieve this accolade. He can’t wait to get out there.”
