Alan, who studies at King’s Ely, played his first international game against the Welsh Druids at the Wellington College Festival in April, helping his team to achieve an 29-29 draw.

Throughout the game, Alan, who plays in the second row, was prominent in defence, making a number of big tackles and looking very comfortable in the international match environment. Both teams scored five tries, with Scotland scoring in the final few minutes to tie things up.

In his second game against the North of England, Alan made even more impressive tackles and won a number of line outs, helping Scotland secure a 26-14 victory, but the might of the full England XV team proved too much for their Scottish counterparts, with a final score of 32-22 to England.

Head of rugby at King’s Ely, Jason Billows, said: “The school is extremely proud of Alan and we look forward to welcoming him to King’s Ely Sixth Form in September, where he will play an influential part in moving the school’s rugby forward and build upon the progress already made. Alan is part of a core group of players that a successful team can be built around.”
