Celebrating Walsall Youth Players

8 months ago By Sara Taylor

We've had a wealth of success for some of our players (past and present) in the last year.

Over the last year there has been significant success for several of our young players who started their involvement in rugby at our club.

Henri Lavin has recently been part of the England U18 side who have played in the Six Nations Festival. He has played for Leicester 1st XV and was a member of the unbeaten team that won the Premiership Academy Championship against Gloucester

Jamie Harding at Leicester, playing for Leicester A and also a member of the unbeaten team that won the Premiership Academy Championship against Gloucester

Paolo Odogwu is now a member of the Sale Premiership squad.

Current players at Walsall are also making their mark on the game.

Will Hennessey and George Perkins were both selected to play for Midlands Under 18 against the North at Stourbridge in February.

Ethan Walker and Nico Watkins have both played every game for Staffordshire Under 20 with Ethan being the team captain.

George Green, Will Hennessy, George Perkins and Nico Watkins
have all played for Staffordshire Under 18's this season

Johannes Christoffersen has played for Staffordshire Under 15's this season.

Corey Blackwood and Dilshan Bamunuvitharana have represented Greater Birmingham Under 15's this season.

and excitingly we have had three players chosen to start the DPP Under 14's for next season. Well done to Lucas Cotterell, Joe Dickson and Toby Smith.

These players have been or are currently, involved at Walsall through the Mini, Junior, Youth Sections.

Good luck to them all now and in the future. May we continue to encourage more players in to the game to play at all levels of the game.
