ASTON teenager Nick Flint has been picked to play for England in the Roller Hockey European Championships in Italy.
The 15 year old was selected following a five-day selection and training trip to Porto in Portugal.
The squad played friendly matches against Portugal, the current European champions, and a number of local teams including the local senior team.
The team gained experience of playing together against continental opposition and setting England up for a good competition.
Roller Hockey is a game similar to field hockey but played on roller skates on an indoor rink.
The team, made up of 10 players from all over England, will travel to Bassano Del Grappa, Italy, this weekend to compete in the week-long under-17 European Championships.
