The second will take place on June 30 at the Stocksfield Sports Ground, when players should arrive for 10am.

Corbridge United U21s are also holding two new squad training sessions on July 8 and 22.
This is a new and exciting period for United, and any players will be welcome.
The new Northumberland Under 21 League gives players the chance to play in against some of the most established clubs in the region before experiencing the senior game.
The sessions will take place at Tynedale Rugby Club at 2pm.
