England football legends son could be destined for big things in Rugby Union

The son of England and Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer has been impressing in the back line for Newcastle School for Boys this season.

Will Shearer is rated highly by his school and if he is anywhere near as successful in the sport as his Dad was in football, he could be running out in an England shirt at Twickenham in the future.

Shearer, who is the record Premier League goalscorer, has admitted in the past that his son does like football, but much favours rugby.

“He does play football but it is rugby he really likes,” said Shearer.

“There are plenty of other kids like him in Newcastle who would rather do something else than go to St James’ Park.” added the former England captain.

Newcastle School for Boys is the northeast region’s only independent school providing education for boys only aged 3 to 18.
