The NLD U16 Trial will be held on Monday 15th September and we are now inviting nominations from Clubs and Schools. The NLD U16 programme is a brilliant opportunity for young players to represent NLD in the RFU County Championship and perhaps even go on to play for Midlands and England.
The squad will train on Monday evenings at Newark RFC and play in the following fixtures:
22/10/14 NLD U16’s Warwickshire RFU County Championship Broadstreet RFC 7.30pm
02/11/14 NLD U16’s East Midlands RFU County Championship Bromsgrove RFC 1pm
16/11/14 NLD U16’s TBC RFU County Championship Leicester Grammar School TBC
Please note that there is a maximum of two nominations from any club or school and in order for the nomination to be accepted the nomination must be completed in full.
The majority of the squad will be formed from players currently involved in DPP and the coaching teams are looking to identify any further players who are not involved in this programme. It is worth keeping in mind that last season out of the 60+ players that attended this trial only 5 were selected.
Any player already involved in DPP at U16 does not need to be nominated for this trial.
Nominations should be completed and returned to NLD U16 Manager Ian Charles no later than 5pm on Friday 12th September 2014, please send nominations via email – [email protected]
