County day - 9th September

Details for the first big event of the new season have been confirmed.

On Sunday 9th September there will be a County Day at Welwyn, starting at 2pm. What this will invove depends on which age group you are in.

9th September will be your County trial. The selectors will be picking about 40 girls who will go onto the next stage. Eventually they will be divided into two squads of 20 - a County Squad and a Barbarian (or "second team") squad - but that will not happened until after some further training sessions, probably in October.

The trials are expected to be mainly based on performance in match situations - but the matches will not be based around club teams.

For the U15s the day will be more of a development occasion to see how many girls are intersted in playing for the county, and what the standards are. A formal trial - if it is felt that one is needed - will take place at a later date.

A "come and try it" U12 event is also planned - and this will be very much an afternoon where we will see what the numbers and interest is, as well as range of ability, before looking to the future.

A good turnout will be important for all three age groups.

Also dual qualified girls should remember that your options remain open until you actualy accept a selection into a formal county squad, so attending the event in Welwyn will not prevent you from also putting yourself forward elsewhere (unless they have trails on the same day, which in the case of East Midlands at least I would not expect).
