Local pupils selected to represent the Prep Schools’ Lions at Gothia World Cup in Sweden

Pupils at Elmhurst School for Boys, Javahn in Year 6 and Daniel in Year 5, have been selected out of a total of 250 trialists to play in the development squad for the Prep Schools’ Lions.

This is the first time ever that Elmhurst School for Boys have had pupils selected to represent the Prep Schools’ Lions. The boys will be competing at the Gothia World Cup in Sweden in July 2021, which is a huge annual event involving over 70 countries.

Javahn, who at present plays for U11’s West Ham Academy, and Daniel, who was selected a year younger than normal as he is currently a Year 5 pupil, were nominated by Phil Venier, Head of Sport at Elmhurst School for Boys.

Phil comments: ‘I am absolutely delighted that both boys have been selected to represent the Prep Schools’ Lions. It is amazing to know that out of 250 trialists not one but two Elmhurst School pupils were chosen.’

‘I knew that Javahn would be one to watch when he came first in the 60m final of the ISA National Championships in Birmingham back in 2019.’

Headteacher of Elmhurst School for Boys, Tony Padfield, adds: ‘Sport plays a key role in the Elmhurst School life, providing our boys with teamwork and leadership opportunities which they can then apply back into their learning here at the school.’

‘I am so proud of the sporting success that the pupils at Elmhurst School have accomplished to date. This is a wonderful achievement and I wish both pupils the best of luck. We will be cheering them on at Elmhurst!’
