Fileman selected to represent England at Youth Nations Cup in Dublin

TAVISTOCK AC discus thrower Edward Fileman has earned another international call-up.

Fileman has been selected to represent England at the Youth Nations Cup in Dublin on August 3.

It follows on from him winning a bronze medal on his England debut at the SIAB International in Wales this month.

The SIAB International was for under-17 athletes, but the Youth Nations Cup at the Morton Stadium is for Under-18 competitors.

Ivybridge Community College pupil Fileman has been in great form this season. He won a silver medal at the English Schools’ Track & Field Championships and threw a PB of 51.70m at the SIAB international, which ranks him third in the UK in his age category.

Cornwall high jump sensational Sam Brereton is also in the England team for the Youth Nations Cup.
