Youngsters given scholarship chance

Youngsters from Brentwood RLFC have been selected for player scholarships with the London Broncos.

Max Clarke and Rian Horsman have been awarded full scholarships for 2015-16, with Owen Dew, Connor Madden and Luca Valentini invited to trial on the programme until Christmas with a view to obtaining full scholarships.

The youngsters were assessed by talent scouts throughout the domestic season and during matches at representative level, with scouts not only viewing them in match-day and training environments, but also analysing their performances through a number of DVD sessions with the Broncos coaching staff.

Brentwood club chairman Carl Horsman said: “This is fantastic news for the players and also the club as a whole.

“These players now have a great opportunity to progress within the sport and should take this chance with both hands.

“Not only will they be training within a fully professional environment, but they will also be playing matches against top-class opposition such as Leeds, Wigan and St Helens.

“It will be an incredibly tough and demanding process, but I’m sure they are up to the challenge and will do themselves and the club proud.

“The boys had their first training session last week and they and their parents were extremely impressed with the facilities and professionalism exhibited by the coaches and staff in attendance.

“The club are really proud of the boys achievements and demonstrates our commitment to player development and also the culture that exists amongst our players, coaches and staff.”
