Eccles Ladies got their competitve season underway in the last two weeks with tough encounters at home to Waterloo and away to Camp Hill. Despite two defeats, the team remain focused and look forward to welcoming Carlisle to Eccles this weekend.
Having been promoted to Championship North 1, Eccles knew there would be a big step up in ability and physicality this year as they play rugby one level below Premiership for the first time. With the Waterloo game a tough opening fixture and bruising defeat, Eccles improved and performed admirably the following week at Camp Hill.
Training hard with an excellent team spirit, Eccles Ladies are learning fast and have plenty more to offer this year. Carlisle visit Gorton Street on Sunday 23 September taking on Eccles Ladies at 2.30pm, all are welcome to attend.
