Gloucestershire U18s vs Somerset U18’s

Congratulations on being selected to play this Sunday, 29th October, for Gloucestershire U18s in which you will be playing Somerset U18s in a trail match.

Please arrive at Tor RFC, Glastonbury, BA6 9BH for 12:15pm. The games will kick off at 2pm where we will play 3 x 30minute games.

Following this we will get the squad down to roughly 30 players to train ready for the county matches. Any player who leaves us at this point will receive full feedback and some work-ons, but may also be brought back in due to injury etc.

One of the issues we have had from previous years is that we’ve had to play everyone we select in the county games at Hornets and for that reason we will take a limited number of players to showcase the best talent Gloucestershire has to offer rather than limiting playing time.

Please see the full programme below with dates & venues.  


  • Sunday 29th October at Tor RFC, BA6 9BH, trial game vs Somerset 2pm Kick off.
  • Sunday 12th November – Training at Gordon League RFC, GL2 5JN, 12:30pm – 2:30pm.
  • Sunday 19th November – Training at Gordon League RFC, GL2 5JN, 12:30pm – 2:30pm
  • Sunday 26th November – Training, Venue TBC
  • Saturday 2nd December – County Game vs Berkshire, 11am Kick off @ Weston Hornets RFC on 3G
  • Sunday 10th December – Training, Venue TBC
  • Sunday 17th December – County Game vs D & W, 11am Kick off @ Weston Hornets RFC on 3G.

The coaches for the U18’s are as follows:

  • Stuart Bradfield – Head Coach
  • Chris Downs – Forwards Coach
  • Jonathan Wilson -  Assistant Forwards Coach
  • Henry Snow -  Assistant Backs Coach

Following the games at Hornets players may get selected for South West trials and then possibly England counties, we as a county have had 17 players gone through to trials in the past 2 seasons as well as players playing for England counties.

Please could you reply confirming you can play this Sunday by Wednesday 25th 6pm, please make every effort to attend this trail match.

Even if you are injured or unavailable for Sunday please could you still reply to me by the deadline above.
