County Schools Union (CSU)

The NLD CSU was formed in April 2019.

The committee is currently chaired by Nick Cairns, with James Hamilton joining him as the NLD CSU National Representative and Mikey Allen as the NLD Youth Council Representative.

The main purpose of the County Schools Union is to represent the interests of all the schools in Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire and Derbyshire, and encourage the further development of schools’ rugby as well as the recruitment of new member schools.

Information on fixtures and results can be found on the NLD CSU website
