Cornish dozen make SW trials

12 Cornwall U20’s selected for Southwest trials.

Following the completion of the SW pools 1 + 2 the SW selectors have invited several players from the 7 SW counties to attend the SW trials on Sunday 28 May.

At each game that is played in the 2 SW pools, a SW selector attends and at the end of the day agrees with both teams coaches a “team of the day”.

At the completion of the pool stages all the SW selectors meet and compile and invite players from those “teams of the day”.

Congratulation to all 12 players on their well-deserved selection. A massive thank you to Trelawny’s Army who once again have offered a bursary to the 12 players to assist in their travelling cost to the venue in Bristol.  All the players and those involved with the U20’s greatly appreciate the support that they give throughout the season and this bursary is another example of that support.
