Following his selection in the Thailand National U12 team in June 2018, last month the BISP Cruzeiro attacking midfielder was promoted to the U14 National side.

Ben joined BISP from Bangkok in 2018 and plays for the BISP Cruzeiro U13 side, which has enjoyed a lot of success recently, having won their age-group at both the PSS tournament and the BSL event in Bangkok earlier this year. He also trains with the BISP Cruzeiro U15 team.

BISP Athletics Director, Jeff Lamantia, says: “Ben joins a distinguished group of BISP students, both former and current, who have represented their country in sport.
