Three Saffron Walden Rugby Club under 14 rugby players, Jacob Adams, Ross Ferguson and Olly Moktar, have been selected to play for Cambridgeshire next season.

The boys, who also play rugby for Saffron Walden County High School, came through a rigorous three-week selection process to earn their places.

Approximately 150 young players in total from other local clubs attended the trials, so competition was tough.

Jacob Adams went one step further by being selected to train with the Northampton Saints development squad for next season. Jacob is the fourth Walden player to achieve this honour.
