U17 Squad Announcements

Post Categories: General News


The second trial/training evening for this year’s U16s & U17s took place last night at Newark and, following the session, the Coaching & Management Team met to discuss the first reduction in numbers prior to the next get together.

As Squad Manager Lee Slack explained to the players and parents present, the programme is designed to operate with a squad of around 35 players in order to ensure those players with the right potential are offered sufficient game time to achieve a grading in the Midlands games next season.

It is always an agonising discussion following these sessions, however, it is not possible to take everyone forward.

Everyone who has participated in the programme so far should feel rightly proud of their achievement.

The programme will now move ahead with a further two training/trials sessions together with two warm up games. The dates for these events will be:

Monday 18 March – Preparation training/trials session for Eastern Counties game

Venue: Newark RFC

Time: 18:00 registration for 18:30 start

 

Sunday 24 March – NLD U17s v Eastern Counties U17s

Venue: Newark RFC

Kick-off: 14:30

 

Monday 15 April – Preparation training/trials session for Leicestershire game

Venue: Newark RFC

Time: 18:00 registration for 18:30 start

 

Wednesday 24 April – NLD U17s v Leicestershire U17s

Venue: Newark RFC

Kick-off: 19:30

 

Following each session, there will be an announcement on this web site as the squad is further reduced towards the final number.

From this point, the programme intensifies and the competition within the squad is increased. Players will be expected to demonstrate enhanced levels of skills and decision making as the Coaches look to identify those players who will represent NLD in the Midlands campaign next season.
