Nuneaton fly half Lee Chapman has been appointed captain of the Midlands Under 20 side for their Divisional Match against the North at Morley on April 6 (6.30pm).
Chapman, a regular in Nuneaton’s National Two North side, is one of three Warwickshire players in the Midlands starting XV.
Leicestershire, who were crowned Midlands Under 20 champions two weeks ago, have four players in the side with four more on the bench.
Notts, Lincs & Derbyshire, who were beaten by Leicestershire in the Midlands final, contribute nine players to the squad that will travel to Scatcherd Lane, five of whom will start.
The North game will be watched by selectors from the newly-formed England Counties Under 20 side who have to pick a squad for an inaugural international against Scotland Under 20 at West Park Leeds on May 6.
