Weston College student Bradley Ash has been selected to play for England Colleges against Australia.

A WESTON College footballer has been selected to play for his country, the first college student to get so far.

Bradley Ash, aged 17, will make his debut for the England Colleges football team against Australia later this month after passing tough national trials.

Bradley is in the second year of an Extended Diploma in Sport, and is one of the youngest players ever to turn out for the first team of Skrill South side Weston.

After passing regional trials in Bridgwater, midfielder Bradley went on to qualify in the South of England category, despite not having the best of games. However, he turned his fortunes around in the national qualifier and was selected to play for England.
