Achampong overcame teammate Eren Gozcu in the final of his competition and said: “This is a great competition because you get to play against other schools across London. I can’t wait for the final and it will help me to get selected again to play for England.”
Gozcu added: “The rivalry between us all is good and this event helps because it’s competitive. We all want to win.”
