Seven A level students at QE have won places in the County Durham U-18’s Rugby Union Squad.

Sam Lorimer, Sam Bell, Costner Brown, Elliot Wanless, John Payne, Danny Souter and Ollie Cooper were delighted to be selected and have risen to the challenge. All play for QE’S First XV and all are members of Mowden Park’s U17 team.  They were nominated by QE Rugby Coach, John Zissler and by John Newton who coaches at the College but who is also the backs coach at Mowden.

QE’s Sport Development Co-ordinator, Paul Carroll comments:

“The 7 lads have done extremely well to be selected for County Honours and we are very proud of them. They are part of a talented and committed group of players that we have in College and are developing really well through both College and the Mowden training and the  games they are playing. All are first year students and they are progressing well with their studies, alongside their sport. QE and Darlington Mowden Park have very strong current and historic links and the success of these students highlights the strength of the partnership.’’
