Cheshire U18 Group: County Nomination

Nomination Form 2014

nomination letter July 2014

Coaches MUST complete the attached Nomination Form (electronically) for all players they wish to be considered for the Cheshire U18s squad this season.

We expect only the best two or three players from each school/club should be nominated and that they are candidates with the potential to play for the County and be considered for possible North squad. The Nomination form, this year, asks for you to identify their rugby potential i.e. Full County (FC); County Squad (CS); Triallist (CT).

In previous years players have been nominated for county squads who were clearly not of the appropriate standard.

Nominations should reach Denis Mahony by Wednesday 17th July.We aim for a Final (East vs West) Trial to take place on Sunday 21st September.

The opening round of the County season is against Yorkshire scheduled for Sunday 26th October 2014.

All of the information for the trials will be on the Cheshire website so clubs and schools will not be contacted directly about the arrangements. The website will also give details of the dates/venues of the county matches and training.
