Durham Academy player Sebastian Hughes-Piñán has been drafted into the Spanish squad for the forthcoming T10 series against Portugal and Romania.

The Spanish youngster will replace Muhammad Yasin who got injured in the recent Noreste Regional League Finals in Montjuic.

On confirmation on Sebastian’s inclusion, Spanish National team coach Corey Rutgers said:

“Excited to see young Sebastian Hughes Piñán in España colours.

“He his someone we have had our eye on for over a year now. He is a very talented youngster with a bright future. Thank you to his father Quentin for helping to facilitate this. I am sure he will fit into our growing Spanish familia very well”
