Blessed Trinity Roman Catholic College student Mason Heys is following in the footsteps of his dad.

The Year 9 second row, who plays for Fylde Rugby Club, has won a place in the North Lancashire Development squad after trials at Preston Grasshoppers.

Father Mick Heys used to play for Fylde’s first team and both North Lancashire and the full Lancashire team when he was younger, and Mason said: “I hope to do the same and maybe go one better and play for the North of England.”
