GB Lions Jnr Trial Report

On a freezing cold day in Hertfordshire, 70+  players vying for a spot on the GB Lions Junior roster gathered at the de Havilland campus, home of the BUAFL Hertfordshire Hurricanes, to take part in the latest trials.
Under the watchful gaze of head coach Damien Anderson and his staff, players from around the country were put through their paces with representatives from the Cambridge Cats, London Warriors, London Blitz, Farnham Knights, London Renegades, Bristol Aztecs, Hertfordshire Hurricanes and more making an appearance.

There was a high level of talent on show across the board, but the stand out positions were definitely Wide Receiver and Defensive Line. There were plenty of parents attending the trials to watch their sons take part and coach Anderson was busy working the crowd, building links with the families of his future players.

"Today was a great foundation to kickstart the program with" Coach Anderson said "and I'm looking forward to seeing the talent in Doncaster next week, as we have a real opportunity to get a strong team together for a run at the championships"

Overall there was a good vibe to the day, which will add to the positive energy building around the national program at the moment. 

Next weekend the GB trials move north to Doncaster for the Juniors, while the Senior team will also be holding trials in Bristol at the Filton Academy.
