Warriors under-17s set to take on Ulster

This Friday the future of Glasgow Warriors will take to the field in Troon to play against Ulster in an under-17 fixture.

Players selected from the Glasgow and Caledonia summer skills programme and born in 1998 will take part in the match at Marr Rugby Club with a 2pm kick-off.

The regional academy coach for Glasgow North, Nic Humphries will coach the side and is looking forward to seeing the youths in action in what is set to be a highly competitive fixture.

Speaking to glasgowwarriors.org he said: “This is a stand alone, unique fixture that further shows the Warriors are progressing all the time, especially with their youth teams.

“This is the first time we’ve played an Irish province side in seven years so it’ll be a great chance for our boys to test themselves.

“These players are the future of the club and could well make appearances for the first team in the coming years.

“The players aims will be to become EDP (Elite Development Players) in the coming years and games against teams like Ulster will only help their progress.”
