County recognition for Eccles

Lancashire County RFU have recognised the efforts of Eccles RFC twice within the pages of its Annual report for the 2017/18 season.

Under ‘WOMENS & GIRLS RUGBY’ is this endorsement from Chairwoman Helen Duggan for our Ladies section –
“Eccles fought a hard battle to avoid relegation from the Championship North 1 ensuring that Lancashire women have a team representing within every level of the current league structure, key to how we can develop rugby going forward.”
In the same report, under ‘COLTS RUGBY’ is this acknowledgement from Chairman Alan James for our hosting of the Lancashire Colts Cup Finals –
“To Paul Thorpe and the team of Volunteers at Eccles, “what a day”! The first time Eccles RFC runs out of beer!! Albeit late in the evening when the crowds where leaving. Your expertise in running the event showed from start to finish; thank you and well done to you all, a true community rugby club.”

Praise indeed.
