Firstly, may I thank all the Players, Parents, Coaches, Officials & Physio who braved the weather on Sunday to attend the Hampshire U15 County Trials.


Your prompt arrival for registration allowed us to adjust squads as required so that we could see all 200 players in competitive games throughout the afternoon.

As you will appreciate with this number of players, selection has not been easy and, in some positions, tough decisions have had to be made.


We will discuss with players the position that we have selected them in during training sessions, especially up front, where we will be playing a back five rather than a front 5 and players will need to be interchangeable.  


The Full Squad of 59 players selected are as follows:


Forward Back
Baird Oban Adams Jack
Bates Oliver Barnes Charlie
Batten Dan Chambers William
Bemelmans Jake Churchill Patrick
Bloomer Matt Coombs Harry
Botham Ben Dhaliwal Youvraj
Brandon Sonny Drummond Charles
Coffin Camren Galton Arki
Fella Dom Graham Max
Fielder Patrick Hibberd Sam
Frazer Oliver Hills Samuel
Hall Adam Kirk Dylan
Henderson Rob Law Josh
Hughes Jason Maddock Jonny
James Ben Manuel Harry
Kirkham Louie Meads-Jones Josh
Knight Magnus Needham-Laing Thomas
Locker Ted Noble Sam
Loughran Alex Norfolk Joe
Mallinson Toby Richardson James
Milne John Salisbury Matthew
New Alfie Sines Josh
Newman-Carter James Thorne Ethan
Nicholls Josh Trafford Tobias
Pawson Jack Vince Samuel
Power Charlie  
Roper Christopher  
Smyrk Jacob  
Talbot John  
Tenniswood James  
Tosdevine Rowan  
West Alfie  
Whitlock Aidan  
Williams Sam
