Ulster Schools' 2016 Trial Teams

Schools' Committee

The following players have been selected for the 2016 Ulster Schools' Trial, which will be held at THE CASTLE GROUNDS (BRA), 690 Antrim Road, Belfast, on FRIDAY 10th JUNE.

Play will start at 1.30 pm – players should report at 1 pm SHARP except by prior arrangement.  Players who have been granted permission to arrive later because of exams should get to the Castle Grounds as soon as possible and will be slotted into the match as appropriate.

Each player should bring his own "packed tea" – there will be no catering on site and there are no shops close by.

It is envisaged that the Trial will have been completed by 7 pm.
