Individually Ben receives regular training from the Welsh coach Ryan Jenkins and has recently won the Cadet Under 15 open tournament, and finished runner up in the under18 category at Halton and this weekend he traveled down to Cardiff where he finished cadet runner up in the premier Welsh championships, losing in the final to the number 1 seed, his strong showing was enough, however to clinch his first full Welsh cap.
