Blaydon Players representing England sides over the summer

The county season has come to a close and most of our lads will now eventually get a much-needed rest, this however is not the case for everybody. The best performers from the county championship are picked to make up an England Counties squad; this squad will travel to Romania for a two game tour.


Once again Blaydon have a huge contingent on the plane, we’ll not only have Gavin jones and Chris Wearmouth in the squad but Harry Bate who is unfortunately moving away from the club this summer, we’re also proud to have Blaydon captain Keith Laughlin captain of the tour.


All four lads fully deserve their selection


Another positive for the club is dual registered second row Will Witty has been selected to start in the first England U20’s game of the world championship against Japan

I’m sure you’ll join me in wishing them all the best.
