Aspiring handball player, 16 year old Joe Nelson from Walton has booked a seat to Denmark in August to compete in The Generation Cup as part of a 16 strong England Handball Futures Programme.
The team will fly to Viborg at the end of July to take part in a 5 day International tournament gaining their first England cap and valuable experience against some talented youngsters from around the globe.
Joe is very thankful to TS5C who have awarded him a starter grant to assist with next seasons training and travel expenses. He has just completed his GCSEs and will be combining his pre season training with a part time job at 1610 Leisure Centre in Glastonbury, where Joe has just qualified as a Level 1 handball coach and referee looking to promote handball at primary school level.
September sees the start of Joe's first season playing at U19 level and for a men's team which will see him travelling around the country for tournaments and elite training camps.
