Youngster named in England U16 squad

Six players from Yorkshire have been named in the England and England A squads for forthcoming tournaments, with three in each squad.
Dominic Barrow, Christopher Gemmell and Ed Hainsworth have named a squad of 26 players to prepare for this season's Four Nations Tournament to be hosted by Wales in April, and an A squad of 26 players to take part in the Millfield International Festival the same month.
England U16 will face hosts Wales, France and Italy in the annual Four Nations Tournament (April 9-15, venues in south Wales to be confirmed) while England U16 A will play against Scotland, Portugal and France during the eight-team Millfield Festival in Somerset (fixtures below).
The squads were finalised during the five-day development camp at Hartpury College held in half-term week (February 17-21), and the 52 boys will next meet for a development session under their respective coaching teams at Cokethorpe School in Oxfordshire from March 6-8.
"There are three more training weekends with the players which amounts to about seven days' more preparation," said Lloyd Morgan, chairman of the England 16 Group selectors.
"Phil Stanlake, the head coach, and his coaching staff are hoping to play an expansive game throughout the two squads, and in this age group the principal accent is on developing players for the future."
The coaches and selectors expect to name a captain for each squad before the final two training weekends.
England U16 will continue to make their base at Cokethorpe (March 13-15 and 28-29) and have lined up practice matches there against Worcester Academy U17 on Sunday March 15 (12.30pm) and Bath Academy U17 (Sunday March 29, 12pm).
England U16 A will train at Solihull School (March 13-15) with a practice match against Northampton Academy U17 on Sunday March 15 (12.30pm). They will re-gather at St Edward's School in Oxford (March 28-29), with a practice match against Saracens Academy U17 at Oxford University's historic Iffley Road ground on Sunday March 29 (12pm).
