Team Middlesex Senior Women
With Women’s rugby going from strength to strength and the success of the first year of the Tyrells Premiership, Middlesex Rugby plays an important part in the development of the Women’s and Girls’ game across the county.
This season Team Middlesex Senior Women are playing Surrey and Sussex in Division 1 of the Gill Burns Cup and throughout the season, we will be running a series of W&G development training sessions.
Nominate your players
for Team Middlesex
Trials for the Senior Women’s team will take place on the 5th and 12th March 2018 at Wasps FC, Twyford Avenue and player nominations are now being accepted.
There is no limit to the number of nominations a club or university may make so long as the player is capable of playing at County level.
To nominate a player for Team Middlesex, please complete all the NOMINATION FORM below by 26th February. We will then contact the player directly.
Team Middlesex aims to develop players through age group representation and advanced coaching to feed the senior squad and transition from development to performance.
As part of the squad, players are exposed to a higher level of coaching, support and encouragement to enable them to fulfill their ambitions. Our philosophy is built around the values of:
HONESTY | INTEGRITY | EXCELLENCE | PROGRESSION & DEVELOPMENT | PERFORMANCE OVER OUTCOME | ENJOYMENT
The time commitment for players is carefully planned so as not to conflict with club commitments and the structured season. The players benefit from high quality coaching and mentoring, skills which they can bring back to their club.

Players are selected to represent Team Middlesex according to their performance in trials. Trial participants are assessed on seven key areas: work ethic, handling, defence, contact, running and evasion skill, decision making and overall effectiveness. We encourage those trialling to make an effort to be noticed by the coaches and other assessors by getting stuck in to the set tasks, and, most importantly, to perform as best as they can on the day.
There will be a number of training and development sessions for squad members throughout the season, as well as opportunities for any U15 or U18 player in the county to come along for development sessions:
There are also opportunities for any talented and enthusiastic female U15 or U18 player in the county to join the squad at open development sessions.
