Distras makes Final Under 15 National Team; travels to Copenhagen

Congratulations to Newham Youngblood’s Lions’ Junior Alex Distras who has been selected to represent England Under 15 Boys at the Copenhagen Tournament, Denmark.

Under 16 Boys Premier Head Coach Aaron Senior said “Alex has represented us at Under 16s level for the past two years and has worked incredibly hard both years, and has been rewarded for his hard work and humble approach. No matter the circumstance, Alex will always continue fighting and that is the great character he has. All of us at the club are so proud of his achievement and wish him and the under 15 Boys National team good luck in Copenhagen”
