The provisional NLD U17s Squad had a run out on Sunday against visitors from Eastern Counties.

The match day format saw 36 NLD players perform over four match sessions with the two sides proving to be equally matched. The games provided the Coaching Team with the opportunity to see how the players performed in a live match situation, and a number of those involved certainly stepped up to the mark.

Before reducing the Squad numbers to a more manageable level, there will be two further games, preceded by a training session. The dates for those events are as follows:

Monday 15 April

Training

Venue: Newark RFC

Registration: from 18:00

Training 18:30 – 20:00

 

Wednesday 24 April

NLD U17s v Leics. U17s.

Venue: Newark RFC

Meet: 18:00

Kick-off: 19:30

 

Sunday 28 April

Eastern Counties/East Mids U17s v NLD U17s

Venue: TBC

Kick-off: TBC

The Coaching and Management Team will be selecting two squads for the respective games so we can, once again, provide players with as many opportunities as possible to showcase their ability and press their claim for inclusion in the final Squad. The majority of players will be involved in only one fixture, however, due to positional requirements, some players may need to be available for both games.

Following completion of these fixtures, the Squad numbers will be reduced and announcement on those selected to go forward will appear here in due course.

AS USUAL, ANY PLAYER WHO IS UNAVAILABLE OR INJURED IS ASKED TO INFORM LEE SLACK AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
