U16 trial 2016

We are inviting you to nominate players from your club/school that you consider to be of the required standard to represent Cheshire at 16 Group Level for season 2016-17.

This procedure is starting later than in previous years due to the fact that the County fixtures will now be held in January and February 2017.

Boys who were members of the Cheshire East, Central or West District squads at U15 level last season(2015-16) need not be nominated, their names should already be on record. However you may have to inform us if there has been a change in the player’s details.

They will be invited to attend a Development/Trial session on Fri 28 Oct at Wirral RFC(details at a later date via the Cheshire Rugby web site). On the basis of performance at this session boys may be invited to join the Cheshire U16 Squad.

It is hoped that boys may also be seen playing for School and or Club.

If you feel that you still have boys of the required standard for County U16 rugby who were not included in the Cheshire County and District Representative sides at U15 last season please nominate these to attend a trial at Wilmslow. H.S. on Mon 17 Oct 4.30 for a 5.00pm start.

A nomination form is attached with this letter. If any boys show the potential to be County players they will be invited to join the Cheshire U16 Squad for season 2016-17.

Nominations should reach me by Fri 30 Sept. Please not that players who turn up on the day for whom no nomination form has been received by the due date will not be allowed to trial.

All the information will be on the Cheshire web site www.cheshirerfu.co.uk so clubs and schools may not be contacted directly about the arrangements. Selected players to the Cheshire U16 Squad will be informed via the Cheshire rugby web site. This will also contain information regarding squad sessions and County fixtures.
