RUGBY UNION - Warwickshire appealing for players to feature in County Championship

Rugby Editorial 25th Apr, 2024 Updated: 26th Apr, 2024   0

RUGBY players around the Warwickshire club scene are being given the opportunity to be part of the 2024 County Championship when the historic competition gets underway next month.

Warwickshire men launch their qualification campaign with a trip to Oundle to face East Midlands in early May.

After three pool stage games the competition’s knockout stages ultimately end with two counties making a Twickenham final appearance.

In preparation for the campaign, county chairman Steve Wilkes issued a rallying call asking players to become involved.

Wilkes said: “Any player who was born in Warwickshire, lives in the county or plays at a Warwickshire club below level five is eligible.

“Our preparation began with a training session at Broadstreet RFC then continues each week on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s.

“Anyone interested in representing Warwickshire can come along.”

Any interested players should contact Wilkes on 07355 045224

Following their opener against East Midlands on May 11, Warwickshire host Eastern Counties at Broadstreet then travel to Chipping Norton to play Oxfordshire on consecutive Saturday’s.

The regional semi-final takes place on Saturday, June 1 ahead of the Twickenham final on Saturday, June 15.
