Welcome to the Dorset and Wilts County U18 (F)

The U18 Dorset and Wilts team has been running for several years now and this year has been another record year for girls being nominated to trial at County level. The development day held at Bryanston School and the trials day at Chippenham RFC saw girls from both counties proving how talented they are. Naturally this made selection a challenging experience for all concerned.

The squad will be involved with the CB girls player pathway programme again this year. This now comes in the form of the Centres of Excellence which is replacing the South West Divisional programme. Some of these players will be looking towards the Women’s game in the near future which can only be seen as inspirational to all.

Whilst players are spread far and wide around the area, it is sometimes difficult to arrange for everyone, including coaches, to be in the same place at the same time. The squad is made up of players from fourteen different clubs and we are confident that everyone will work together to make a cohesive team.

Our aim is having fun, making new friends and playing some great rugby in the true spirit of the game of rugby.
