The Perse School pupil earns top selection

James Tee has earned a national football call-up.

The 15-year-old Perse School student has been chosen to play for the Independent Schools Football Association under-16s national team, in a squad of 18 from across the country.

Tee currently plays for Cambridge City, having previously spent seven years in the Cambridge United academy.

On the call-up, Tee said: “I was over the moon of course.

“It’s a big achievement for me and a proud moment.”

Tee will be heading to St George’s Park this week for a two-day training camp, and the squad will then go overseas during Easter for a series of games.

“I started off as striker, and then I gradually moved into the midfield and then finally the defence where I now play left-back,” said Tee.

“I enjoy the position because you can attack as well as defend and you get a mixture of both so I’ve kind of grown attached to the position now.

“When I was five years old I really didn’t like football because I was smaller than everyone.

“After a year or so when I came back into it, I just suddenly found a love for the sport and I used to play in the garden with my dad a lot and it just grew on me the more I played.”
