LSH launch women’s team at Moss Lane
6:16pm Friday 27th July 2012 in Sport
LIVERPOOL St Helens Rugby club are set to continue their expansion this season with the launch of their open age Women’s Rugby Team. LSH first introduced U15s and U18s Girls rugby three years ago and now has one of the largest and most successful squads in the country, so the formation of a Women’s team is a natural and very welcome progression for the Club.
The first training session is scheduled for Wednesday, August 8 at Moss Lane.
Newly appointed LSH Women’s Rugby Coordinator, Peter Morrissey said: “Rugby is a game for all shapes and sizes and it doesn’t matter if you haven’t played before as our coaching team will soon have you up to speed. “Our U15s and U18s Girls have gone from strength to strength and recently toured the South of France and where they were introduced to Jonny Wilkinson so I believe the Women’s Team will also be a huge success.”
The new LSH Women’s team will play at least eight friendly fixtures this season before joining the North West League in 2013.
LSH Chairman John Bithell felt that the development was the culmination of a lot of hard work within the club. “The Women’s Team could be viewed as the final piece in the jig-saw giving us a full complement of teams from U7s right through to our Senior Men’s XV’s as well as Girls U15s and U18s. Everyone at the club is very excited to welcome the new Women’s Team to the LSH family”
