MALVERN Town football club has its own England international amongst its squad after Tom Henson was called up into his nation’s Universities squad.

Tom put in a Man of the Match display for the England ‘South’ team in a recent trial game against the ‘North’.

The Hartpury University student has also been given his first taste of Step 4 football throughout this season, combining his exploits for Malvern with outstanding performances for his university team as they won the BUCS National Final recently.

The youngster said representing England Universities was an extremely proud moment for him and he was looking forward to what will come next for him.

He added: “I’m enjoying my football this season; at the university level I’ve been part of some great performances for Hartpury and winning the BUCS National Final was brilliant for everyone involved.

“The challenge that has come with playing in the Southern League for Malvern Town is also something that I have faced with relish.

“It’s such a competitive level to play at with some top teams involved; every game is different and no opposition should be under-estimated.

“It has certainly helped me grow and develop as a player.

“I want to reach as high a level as I possibly can in the game and to do that, I feel that it is important to stay patient as a young player, take in and learn from each experience as it comes along.

“I have certainly learned a lot this season and feel that things are progressing in the right direction, so long may that continue.”
