There has not been too much to cheer about of late so let us offer hearty congratulations to Louis Laing, who has been called up into the England Under 18 squad for the friendly against Italy in Capri next Tuesday.
Laing – in the centre of the photo – has impressed one or two people known to M Salut with his performances for the reserves, and it is good to see his progress honoured. Let us hope he gets to play in some part of the game.
Another apprentice defender, Jordan Watson, has also won international honours, selected in Northern Ireland’s under-19 squad playing in Slovakia next week. Well done Jordan, too – send us a photo and we’ll add it!
