“This is an exciting day for Tresham College to have our first England player from our football academy. Especially during the World Cup when football is on the top of the TV menu.”
Dominik, aged 17, who lives in Corby, came to the UK from Poland when he was two. He now plays for Harborough Town FC where his team mates are thrilled to hear his news.
Said Paul Curtis, college Head Coach:
“Dominik was one of five players put forward by our college football academy to attend the ECFA National Team selection process.
“From that we were lucky enough to have three players selected out of 40 to attend the second and final phase.
“They attended the final phase on Sunday 13th November and later Dominik received the email to confirm he had indeed been selected to England team.
“It’s fantastic news and our first England international.”
