Derby Colts player Will Town has been selected for the Midland Counties squad to attend the National Development weekend trial for the England Counties squad which takes place this weekend 23rd & 24th February 2019.
Will, who joined Derby RFC from Belper at U12’s, is a former Leicester DPP attendee and is currently studying for A levels at Denstone College. He has already represented NLD at U17 and U18’s and also Staffordshire U18’s.
Wills says “I love playing rugby and have met friends for life along the way so far. My message is never give up on your dreams. I was disappointed when I got released from Tigers at 16 but so many other exciting doors have opened up for me, doors I didn’t know existed. There is a lot of high standard rugby out there in the counties with opportunities and pathways to progress and develop yourself.
I still manage to play for Derby Colts when I’m back and really enjoy playing with my mates, to me that’s truly what it’s all about…”
