An up-and-coming footballer from Tring reached the pinnacle of college football when he represented his country last month.

Juud Farrant, 17, a student at Milton Keynes College, was selected to play for the prestigious English Colleges FA team in an international tournament in Italy.

Right winger Juud, who has trialled with QPR, netted a goal against Greece and registered one assist during the tournament. England topped their group before eventually losing to Wales on penalties in the final.

Juud said: “It was one of the best experiences of my life, and while it was gutting to lose in the final, it was fantastic to be a part of it.”

English Colleges FA manager Darin Killpartrick said: “Juud has been an integral part of the team, showing an outstanding attitude both on and off the pitch. He is an exciting player who has settled well into the squad, showcasing his talent at any given opportunity. I am looking forward to watching him lock horns with the opposition at an international standard and challenging himself at every opportunity.”
