County U17s

Durham County Under 17s 

 

The Durham County U17’s start their campaign for the 2016/2017 season in December 2016.

Before the team selection process, the U17s completed two training/ assessment sessions where nominated players are invited along to demonstrate their skills and eligibility to be picked for the final 30 man squad.

After the assessment process the U17s were thinned out to pick a representative team! The competition continues at training as players are in contest for places in the matchday squad.

Sunday January, 29: Durham V Cumbria AWAY – Creighton RUFC- 2pm KO :  21-18 Victory

 

Durham V Cumbria : Creighton RFC: 21-18 Victory 

Durham had a tough fight in awful conditions against Cumbria away in their second game of the season. Putting their heart and soul into the game the visitors pulled back from 15-0 down, 18-7 down to finally blow the whistle on a 21-18 victory.

Cumbria demonstrated good skills in the backs with some good hands creating them chances.

Both sides made a good game out of poor conditions as the mud made each team member unrecognizable. Nether the less it kept things interesting and enjoyable.
