County U16s

Durham County Under 16s 

The Durham County U16’s start their campaign for the 2017/2018 season in the New Year.

Before the team selection process, the U16s completed training/ assessment sessions the same as the other County teams to enable the coaching team to see who out of the nominated players should be invited to represent the County.

After the assessment process the U16s were thinned out to pick a large training squad for the Princes and Bishops representative sides. A match day 23 will be picked for both sides following the first squad training session.
