Olney's Charlie Wood makes the England squad

By Kath Middleditch

Touch Rugby tournament bronze

Olney Ladies' player Charlie Wood represented England in the 2016 Junior Touch Rugby Championships in Arnhem, Holland.

Charlie played in the U18 mixed squad in August, and they had a tough group including Scotland, Wales, Ireland, France, Guernsey, UAE and Italy.

After three days of competition they ended up in the play off final against France to determine third and fourth place, England fought what was their toughest match and beat the French 4-3 to take the bronze medal. Wales won the competition, with Scotland runners up.

What a fantastic experience for Charlie, who now hopes to move up to the England ladies squad.
