The Lancashire call ups keep coming! We are proud to announce that two more TRUFC players have been selected to represent Lancashire rugby this time at U18 level.
Owen Armstrong and Sam Townsley will don the Lancashire U18 shirt when they take on Cumbria at Darlington Mowden Park on Sunday 29 October.
Owen has been part of this season unbeaten Senior Colts Squad and made his Senior Team debut earlier in the season. Owen has made no secret of the fact he has wanted to play for Lancashire for a long time, regularly attending trials and, despite some setbacks and, he has worked hard on his game and been tenacious in making sure county selectors had to have him in their squad
Senior Colts Team Manager Janet Jones said “Owen has shown great resilience in achieving his Goal to play for Lancs after some setbacks along the way. It’s fantastic to see Owen’s name on the Lancs squad list and goes to show that if you work hard to improve your game and never give up you can achieve your goal”
Sam started the season with the Senior Squad making his senior debut early in the season but unfortunately injury and college rugby commitments have limited Sam’s appearances for us, but we are looking forward to him pulling the TRUFC shirt back on in November.
Good luck to our boys and everyone pulling on the shirt to represent Lancashire!
