Congratulations on reaching this stage, the North U20 Coaching & Management Team look forward to seeing you all on the 22nd April.

We (North U20 Group) understand that a lot of players who have NOT been invited to Trial will be disappointed, that is entirely understandable but the North U20 Selectors have a tried and tested process of review and selection. Whilst we would love to give feedback to everyone it is just not physically possible to provide succinct feedback to over 150 players, so in the first instance we would recommend you speak to your County Coach.
