The RFU have today informed the England U20 Counties Delivery Team that this years U20 Counties programme has been cancelled, this includes the remaining knockout rounds of the JL County Championship, Divisional Assessment days, National Development Weekend and Tour to Georgia. We are in unprecedented times and even though the cancellation of the programme is frustrating, it is beyond our control and there are bigger issues that need to be dealt with.On behalf of the L&SE Delivery Team I would like to thank you all for your hard work, commitment and support of the U20 aspirational programme and please pass on our thanks to your fellow CB coaches, medical staff, volunteers, community clubs and of course your players for all their hard work and dedication over the last six months.I look forward to catching up with you when we come out the other side, which we will in due course.Best wishes and stay safe.SimonSimon StodartLondon & South East U20 Counties Team Manager
