Lucas Derrick U/17 Soccer World Cup
Brighton Grammar’s very own Lucas Derrick (Year 11) was selected to go to Chile as part of the U/17 National Socceroos squad (known as the Joey’s) competing in the FIFA World Cup. Just like the Official World Cup the U/17 competition is played every four years and pits the best of the best against each other to determine the greatest soccer team in the world. This year the Joey’s were in the group of death where they play Germany, Mexico and Argentina. Despite this, the Joeys had a very successful World Cup, beating Argentina and drawing with Mexico, before losing to Nigeria in the Round of 16.
