“Speedy like his Dad” – England rugby legends son signs with Manchester City


Alex Lewington (Notts County): The speedster started his sporting life as a footballer in Notts County’s academy – he was a frustrated forward playing as a defender and was soon to be disenfranchised with the game.

Wesley Fofana (Paris): Before the France debuted with Claremont, however, he trained with CFF Paris’ youth team. It wasn’t until Fofana was a teenager that he decided to leave his dreams of being a top-class footballer behind and went head first into playing rugby.


Alex Goode (Ipswich Town): A box-to-box hardworking player, he’d bring balance to this midfield.

Alex Lozowski (Arsenal, Chelsea, West Ham): He played in a number of football academies before making the decision to pursue rugby. We think he’d bring creativity to the centre of the park. Lozowski even played with England captain Harry Kane at ARSENAL,

Aaron Wainwright (Cardiff City): He looked destined for a career in football having been on the books of Cardiff City and Newport County during his teenage years. He then took up rugby after being released age 16.
