Royston’s Matthew Boyce will chase high profile success at the upcoming Sainsbury’s 2015 School Games in Manchester, when he competes in this prestigious multi-sport event for school-age athletes.
One of the 1,600 athletes competing in this year’s Games, which take place between September 3-6, the 15-year-old will represent England in judo.
Twelve sports, seven of which include disability disciplines, will be contested at the four-day games.
Boyce said: “I feel proud to have been selected to compete for my country in the Sainsbury’s School Games. My aim is to do the best I can and I know there is no reason why I can’t win a medal if everything goes right on the day.”
The event is supported by National Lottery funding from Sport England and delivered by the Youth Sport Trust.
