Details confirmed for Devon Under-18 assessment day

24 Oct 2019 10:54 | Devon RFU

THE Devon under-18 assessment day will take place on Sunday at Ashbury Hotel in Okehampton.

Clubs and schools across the county have nominated players and those that have been nominated should have (or be in the process of) receiving an email to confirm their participation.

The assessment afternoon will consist of some training, with a focus on decision making through small sided games, followed by a larger game that will have elements of full contact and live match play. Players are asked to bring all the equipment they would use for a full live game. 

The pitch that will be used at Ashbury is a 3G surface so players must wear either metal or rubber studded boots only (no blades or astroturf shoes).

Anyone attending the day should meet and park in the Saints South West car park (Ashbury Hotel, Fowley Cross, Devon EX20 4NA).

Timings for the day are as follows:

Meet / Registration  12:30pm

Session Start           13:00pm

Session Finish         16:00pm

The hotel will be open for parents if they wish to get some food in the restaurant, they offer a £6 carvery lunch all afternoon.

Due to the RFU age grade calendar this is the only assessment day Devon are able to offer.

The management team for the U18s season will be Joel Caddy (head coach) Sean Cook (team manager) Ed Powell, Aidan Taylor and Darren Oxland (assistant coaches).

Any players that are injured should do get in touch and let the team know the extent of your injury. If anyone has any questions

If you have any questions leading up to the assessment day please do let the team know at the earliest opportunity.
