East Surrey Development League ( U9-U11)

The league was created to help developing players in clubs with large squads who did not get many opportunities to represent their clubs in competitive matches. It aims to give players the chance to improve their rugby and to play rugby in a friendlier competitive atmosphere than at Festivals. The structure is a series of friendly matches with a competitive edge and played in a shorter time frame than all day Festivals, within usual training time. Training and coaching will be very much part of the sessions to help these players develop.

2017/8 Season is the first year of the East Surrey Development league and we are hoping to help develop our U9- U11s squads during the transition years in contact. The Teams which are in the League is Dorking, Old Reigations, Sutton & Epsom & Warlingham.
