EIGHT Shoreham College students have made their international debut as ball girls and boys.

Students from years ten and 11 took part in the U20 Six Nations match between England and France at the Amex Stadium in Brighton on Friday.

Former student Mel Liley works for the Rugby Football Union and offered current pupils the opportunity for an experience of a lifetime, pitch side at an international rugby match.

The team chosen was Ella Scammell, Jasmine Dean-Milward, Marcus Law, Jack Kearney, Liley Simon, Hannah Griffiths, Charlie Knight and Liam Kerrigan.

A training session was arranged before the big day and Mel said the team did a fantastic job on the night, maintaining their focus and acting as excellent ambassadors.

The game saw England win the Under-20 Six Nations title for the fourth time in five years. The stadium will also host two games in the Rugby World Cup in the autumn.
