NLD U20’s to Face North Midlands

The NLD U20 Coaching & Management team have announced the 22 man squad that will take on North Midlands RFU on Sunday at Derby RFC, kick off at 2.15pm.

NLD U20 Manager Graeme Gunn commented; ‘We are really looking forward to the opening match of this year’s RFU County Championship.  We had a strong warm up game against Warwickshire a couple of weeks ago which has left the squad full of confidence.  It is great to see so many players in the squad that have played throughout the NLD age groups at U16, U18 and now U20 but also a number of newer faces who have impressed the coaching team.

As always we are very grateful to all of the clubs, coaches, universities and Nottingham Academy for their support with the programme.  We had over 60 players trial for the squad this season from 19 different organisations, the most I have seen in recent years.

Sunday’s game promises to be an excellent encounter – all are welcome to come along and support the lads as they look to make a strong start to their campaign.’
