Durham County U18s announce training squad following trials


Durham County U18 Girls held their trials on Sunday for all nominated players to showcase their talent.

Darlington Rugby Club welcomed a record number of girls for the U15 and U18 trials.

This year, Durham County Coaches held two coaching camps throughout the summer for any players to attend to get a taste for county level.

Following nominations from clubs and schools, players were invited to the first trial session to demonstrate their abilities in a round of five 15 minute games of rugby.

Congratulations to the following girls that will continue to battle for places as we approach games.

Well done to all that attended and got involved!
