Eccles Ladies 1st XV have made a solid start to the new season in Championship North 1. Having played three matches, the ladies have picked up two wins and a bonus point, losing only one match so far.
The results so far are as follows;
10/09/2017 Eccles Ladies 19 – 12 West Bridgford
17/09/2017 Sheffield Ladies 10 – 35 Eccles Ladies (Bonus point for 5 tries scored)
24/09/2017 Eccles Ladies 20 – 39 West Park Leeds
Rowanne Smalley is the ladies current top try scorer with 6 tries
The ladies section are evolving this year, a few players from last year have now finished playing and the squad are overcoming a few injuries early in the season. The positive to come out of all of this is that a number of players have stepped up and put in some super performances which is very encouraging.
A number of new players have joined Eccles Ladies and the team has forged stronger links than ever before with the Girls’ rugby section. There are now opportunities for Ladies and Girls to train together with the senior players sharing their knowledge and experiences with the younger players.
There is plenty more action to come when Eccles take on Loughborough Ladies this Sunday, 8 October, at Gorton Street. They will be looking to get back to winning ways at home and consolidate their spot in the top half of the table.
For now, here’s some more photos from the first few games along with team lists and scorers.
