The email is to confirm acceptance of the invitation to the trial which is on Wednesday 28th December at Woodhouse Grove School. You must also commit to the whole process if selected to progress further.

After the trial 23 players will be selected for the North U18 squad which will include 6 front row. Players who are unsuccessful will receive feedback after the North trial.

Under 16’ Selection 2016-2017

I should like to take this opportunity to extend my sincere thanks to all of the players and parents for the support and attendance at the game assessment evenings this season. As you can all imagine the selectors have had a most difficult task, bearing in mind the constraints placed upon them in terms of the time span allotted to them by the RFU to conduct this exercise and especially giving every nominee enough game time to show their talents. Decisions must be made under such conditions and therefore I wish to notify you that the players listed below have been selected for Cheshire Under 16’s. Please note that all players listed below must attend the first training session. The training sessions will be posted on the Cheshire website as soon as we have confirmation of the selected venues.

Please click on the link below for all details of players selected to play for Cheshire U16’s:-
