North Star


Eccles Ladies’ Igemi Ekoku was named in the starting XV and on the scoresheet for North of England Ladies as they beat the Midlands 41-7 at Scarborough on 17/02/13. “Igz” is the club’s first representative at North level since the reorganisation of the women’s game to bring it in line with the same divisional structure as men’s rugby. There are two more games in the coming weeks, against the South West at Waterloo on 03/03/12 and then London and the South East at Esher on 10/03/12. I’m sure you’ll join me in wishing her and the rest of the squad continued success.
