County call up for classy Campbell

DYKE HOUSE student Tom Campbell has powered his way onto the county stage.

 

HONOURED: Tom Campbell

DYKE HOUSE student Tom Campbell has powered his way onto the county stage.

Campbell shone during the trials where he was one of 32 players to have been selected from 190 rugby players.

He has now been selected for the Durham County Selection Programme, where there are three sectors - north, south and central - depending on locality.

Out of the 32 spaces in total, from all three regions, Campbell is one of an unprecedented seven players from the Hartlepool Old Boys side he captains to be called up.

It is an outstanding achievement for all the selected players, for the club and the town too.

From Campbell’s point of view it is another sign of his fine progress.

At his Old Boys presentation evening earlier this month he was awarded the Coaches’ Award for his leadership this season.
