LEICESTERSHIRE, the Midlands champions in this season’s National Under 20 Championship, have eight players in the Midlands Under 20s training squad.

Leicestershire edged out Notts, Lincs & Derbyshire in a gripping final at Rugby Lions last Wednesday and their success has been rewarded with the selection of centre Matthew Fisher, wing Devon Constant, scrum-half Tom Hogarth, loosehead prop Ewan Bartlett, hooker Jordon Goddard, tighthead prop George Richardson – the son of former Leicester Tigers prop Wayne Richardson – lock Will Ward and number eight Tom Morris in a 27-man Midlands squad.

The Midlands will train at Barkers’ Butts RFC near Coventry over the next three Wednesday’s ahead of the National Under 20 Counties Development Weekend at the Welbeck Defence College near Loughborough from April 6 to 8.

The Midlands will play London & SE on April 6 at 2.30pm with their opponents on April 8 to be determined. The weekend will form the final stage in the selection process for the England Counties Under 20 side ahead of their international against Scotland Under 20s at St Andrews University on May 4.

The Midlands Under 20s squad will train for the first time on March 21 under their new lead coach Jon Phillips, the former Northampton Saints and Bedford Blues lock.
