Another proud day for the club! Massive congratulations to Michael Akinyemi who has been chosen to represent his country with the Great Britain GB Lions Team!

We asked Michael how he feels about the selection and the challenge that lies ahead; “I am very proud to have been selected to the GB squad but it is only just a beginning. Only 60 odd players will travel with the team and there is competition to be chosen as one of the Defensive Linemen. I am very proud to be representing the Stallions”

HC Warren Smart had this to say; “Michael started at the club two years ago as a complete rookie, but immediately we knew he was going to be a top level DE. His first full season was last year where he won Rookie of the Year. With the competition so fierce at the adult trials, it’s a huge accomplishment to be selected, and a testament to his talent and work ethic. We are all immensely proud and can’t wait to see him pull on that GB Lions jersey!”

Good luck Michael, Respect All. Fear none!
