Devon U16s name squad from which teams to face Somerset will be selected
DEVON Under-16s have named a squad from which their A and B teams will be selected from to play Somerset Under-16s at Ivybridge RFC on Sunday, January 6.
The players named should attend a match organisational training evening on Friday, January 4 at Keyham (6-30-8.30pm). Players should report to lead coach James Kelly on the night. All the information about the Somerset match will be announced that evening.
Devon shorts and socks are available to buy from the Kitworld website, shirts are provided for matches. Devon Schools' secretary Lisa O'Shaughnessy will have a limited number of new Devon shorts and socks to purchase on the day. This year's shorts are black. If due to Christmas parents were unable to purchase shorts in time for this game then players will be allowed on this occasion only to wear plain black ones (but they must not have any other club/sponsor logos etc on).

People are only allowed on the pitch with the correct footwear (this includes officials) and people entering the pitch have to pass through the decontamination area.
