Holy Trinity Student to Join County U15 Rugby Squad

Thirteen year old Louie Middleton from Holy Trinity School in Kidderminster has been selected to represent the County U15 Rugby Team for Worcestershire and Herefordshire. Louie, who plays for the Kidderminster Carolians team, reached the semi-finals of the County cup earlier this year, so to now be selected to represent the County is a terrific personal achievement. Louie began playing for Kidderminster Carolians Rugby Football Club at the age of 6 years and since then has established himself in the front row as a Loose Head Prop, although he also plays in the second row. The team have enjoyed a number of successes including runners up in the North Midlands Festival in 2011. The 2012/13 session saw the team go the whole season unbeaten and this year they reached the semi-final of the North Midlands Plate. Louie's personal success came in 2013 when he was nominated as the Most Improved Player, before then in 2015 awarded the Coaches Player of the Year award and today selection for the Worcestershire and Herefordshire County U15 Rugby Squad. Holy Trinity School Headteacher, Mrs Leek-Wright commented: “It does not surprise me that Louie has achieved such accolades as he is a hardworking and determined young man. He sends a positive message to all in that if you commit and never give up, you can achieve.”
