Three Winscombe players in SW squad

Three Winscombe Under-16 players have been selected for the South West divisional squad.

WINSCOMBE RFC was delighted to hear three of their Under-16 players had been selected for the South West divisional squad.

The three players are Darren Atkins, Curtis Langdon, and Sam Rees, and were part of the 10-strong contingent of Winscombe players who represented Somerset in the recent county series.

The squad will have a training and final selection session at the BGS grounds in Failand on December 15 before playing the North at the Broadstreet Development Camp on February 1-3.

Ultimately, the division system leads to an England Under-16 side that plays Italy and Wales at the end of the season.

Winscombe mini and junior chairman Mike Williamson said: “To get one player into the South West squad is an achievement, but for one club to have three players represented is a major achievement.

“We send our congratulations to the boys, and also to the 55 coaches we have at Winscombe, whose hard work gives our players these opportunities.”
