Devon County U18's Team Selected 28th September'08
Cullompton RFC hosted trials for this years Devon County u18 and u15 squads. 38 girls attended for the coveted 25 places on the u18 squad and 34 girls in attendance for the u15 squad.

The girls started with a 30 min warm up and then split into forwards and backs for an initial assessment by the coaches and then it was into match play with the girls split into two teams for 2 games of 20 min each way. The coaches then assessed them in game play.

The coaches and team manager then had the task of making selection of the final 25 which seemed to take as long as the trials themselves.

The final squad is as follows:

Team Manager - Denise Hodge
Lead Coach - Mark Weekes
Assistant Coaches - Gary Kennard, Nick Manning and Ted Underwood

Alice Weekes - Cullompton Vixens
Chloe Tullett - Cullompton Vixens Jennifer Manning - Cullompton Vixens
Rachel Manning - Cullompton Vixens
Kelly Kennard - Cullompton Vixens
Kirsty McCall - Tavistock
Paige McGechie - Tavistock
Lucy Lane - Tavistock
Robynne Honey - Tavistock
Clara Nielson - Tavistock
Alice Conn - Tavistock
Sian Hobday - Plymouth Albion
Kim Barber - Plymouth Albion
Mica Evans - Exeter Saracens
Alice Holden - Exeter Saracens
Sophie Staniforth - Exeter Saracens
Amy Alford - Exeter Saracens
Jordan Crook - Exeter Saracens
Fran Strong - Exeter Saracens
Caitlin Short - Exeter Saracens
Lauren Bartlett - Exeter Saracens
Garnet MacKinder - Exeter Saracens
Jennie Hamer - Exeter Saracens
Holly Beaven - Exeter Saracens
Jane Westcott - Exeter Saracens

The girls face a lot of travelling this season with their home fixture against Cornwall (the infamous Tamar Cup clash) on the 9th November at Exeter Saracens followed by away fixtures on the 30th November against Gloucestershire and then on the 14th December against Dorset and Wiltshire.

We would also like to thank the Devon Junior Committee for their full support of the girls at both age groups and also Vospers, Island Sports and Ardosia Slate who are also sponsoring both squads this year.
