Club Hampshire U18 fixtures 2017-18

 

Objectives for U18 season

 

This is another performance season with the opportunity for selection to Divisional and England squads which therefore means the focus will be different to U17’s. We will pick the best available squad of players for each fixture, there is no guarantee all bench players will get equal game time and we expect players to be available for all dates on the programme.

 

Nominations for open trials

 

Clubs, coaches, schools and colleges who wish to put forward players for U18's squad trials, should complete and return the nomination form (click here for nomination form) to the

U18s Manager Sarah Mitchell (email address sjmitchell@waitrose.com )  

no later than 18:00 on the 22nd September 2017.

Please DO NOT send mobile phone photographs of the form as they are illegible and will not be accepted.

 

The 2016-17 U17 squad do NOT need to be re-nominated - they just turn up for the trials on 8th October.

 

Trials will be held at

St John's College Playing Fields in Farlington Portsmouth PO3 6QB

Registration from 09:30, trials will end by 16:00.

Over the last two seasons there has been a shortage of front row players and we would ask coaches to consider this in their nominations.
