Harry Paul and Josh Lowes, who both play in the centres, together with fly-half Ben Yeates, must now impress the selectors to win themselves match day places for upcoming games against Yorkshire and Cumbria next month.

This is the fourth season that Harry and Josh have made the County squad, with Ben making his debut at this level this time around.

Alnwick coach Andy Yeates said: "It's testament to the hard work that Harry, Josh and Ben have put in. With no Colts games this season they have been playing for the 2nds and 3rds.”
