SIX Romford youngsters have been selected for the South East under-11s squad this season.
Mikey Power, Harry Gulliver and Mason Biddulph fly out to Zell am See in Austria for a tournament this weekend, hoping to secure their place for the Junior Inter-Conference tournament in Hull next month.
Joseph Larke, Ethan James and Samuel Wright have also earned their South East jerseys and Romford Raptors manager Lynda Gulliver said: "We're very proud of what Samuel, Joseph, Ethan, Harry, Mikey and Mason have achieved. For so many boys from Romford to be picked for the South East conference is absolutely fantastic."

*ROMFORD'S JJ Pitchley helped Bracknell under-18s qualify for the national final with an aggregate win over northern champions Telford.
Beaten 5-2 in the away leg, Bracknell were given early hope when Pitchley struck in the third minute of Sunday's return.
The St Edwards pupil netted again around the midway mark as his side went into the final period 4-1 up on the night and completed his hat-trick in n 8-2 win as Bracknell booked a trip to the Coventry Skydome on April 11.
*EMERSON PARK twins Sonny and Charlie Phillips were on duty with England under-14s at the Golden Puck tournament in Hungary this week.
Charlie picked up an assist in an 8-0 win over Serbia's HK Beostar before England came from behind to win their second game 2-1.
England lost 4-3 to Croatia's Team MAC and 4-2 to Mozhaysk (Russia) to go into the third-place play-off, but were left to rue a slow start as they slipped to a 6-2 defeat against ZSHL, of Croatia.
