Sophie Jackson was selected for England Colleges Netball, while Maddie Larkin and Joe Barber were picked for England Colleges Hockey.

Meanwhile, Rose Brown was chosen for England Rugby 7s and Ben Lucas was named in the England Senior volleyball squad.

Finally, Sport lecturer Mark Jackson was called up to represent Great Britain playing basketball.

Mark said: “I take my hat off to these students because it’s often hard to manage training, games and regional or national colleges training on top of college work and other commitments.

“Each of the students should be proud of themselves, and as a college we are proud of their success.”

On his own selection success Mark said: “When you reach a certain age, life can take you away from your passion to play, but Great Britain has offered this great opportunity for ex-pro’s like myself to keep their competitive drive going.

“I can’t wait to get out there and represent GB,” he added.
