RUGBY UNION: Cheshire calls for prop Yoxall
A PROMISING teenager from Knutsford Rugby Club has impressed selectors for a county representative team.
Prop Declan Yoxhall has been selected for the Cheshire’s East district at under 15s level for friendlies against their counterparts from Central and West Cheshire as well as Manchester.
The first match is scheduled for the end of next month.
“It’s a fantastic achievement and we’re all really proud of him,” said club president Tony Evans.
“Declan has been with us since our inaugural season in 2004 and is now part of a thriving under 15s squad that includes five other boys that have been in the county’s development squads over the past couple of years.”
Knutsford now boasts more than 250 junior members, with weekly practice sessions held on Sunday morning at Knutsford Academy.
