Worcestershire Under 16 Boys representative squad

Trials for season 2013-14


Please can you email me nominations for the U16 Worcestershire County Schools side next season. This will be current Y10s.  Only schools from Bromsgrove, Wyre Forrest and Redditch districts will need to nominate as I already have information for pupils from Worcester & District. The trial format still needs to be confirmed but it will likely take place during May half term. The trial will be used to select a group of 16ish pupils who will then play a trial game against the Worcester & District side. From this trial fixture eighteen pupils will be selected to represent the county. In recent years the county side has been dominated by pupils from Worcester & District due to lack of nominations from other districts. This has prevented the strongest side being selected. I am keen that the trial process this year ensures that there is fair representation from across the county.  Please note that the majority of county sides we play have a number of centre of excellence players, therefore if you have pupils who play at this level please ensure that they are aware of the trials. I am still in the planning stages but would like to take the county side to the US next year to put them on the radar of college coaches. A number of our pupils are more than capable of gaining college scholarships and for those who represent the county, hopefully we will be able to offer this opportunity to showcase their talents.  Please can teachers send me the following for each pupil that they wish to nominate Name,  Position,  Club/Centre of Excellence  If I can have this information by Monday 6th May at the very latest this will enable me to plan appropriately. I will then send you a trial letter than includes all relevant information that can be passed onto each pupil nominated for county trials.  If any members of staff would like to help support the trial process and or a county representative side for next season all support offered would be appreciated.

 Kind regards Gary Barrell
