HAWKSHAW teenager Morgan Skeels-Caldwell helped Lancashire RFU Under-18s’ team to a 15-5 win against Yorkshire on his first outing for the team.

The youngster, who is a sixth form student at Bolton School Boys’ Division, was rewarded with a call-up after his hard work and dedication to the sport.

Taking his position as flanker in the back row and performing two turnovers, Skeels-Caldwell helped Lancashire overcome their Roses rivals at Bishop Burton College.

In the build-up to the fixture, Lancashire had trained hard and Skeels-Caldwell reflected: “I worked hard to stand out at the trials and was delighted to be picked for Lancashire.

"We trained intensively and there were a few late nights but it was worth putting in those hours.

"I was not nervous before the match but was very focused.

"The match was hard work but I really enjoyed it.” 

Next up for the Lancashire U18s is a game against Cumbria in a couple of weeks’ time.
