Northern Lights

Eccles Ladies are pleased to announce that they have three representatives in the new North of England Academy squad; Katie Houghton, Rebecca Owen and Claire Knapp.

In a restructure of the ladies game the North of England Academy replaces the previous North of England Divisional team, with a focus on player development rather than just competing in the Divisional Championship. The players will attend a number of training camps throughout the season working on all aspects of their game. The Divisional Championship will remain as an end of season competition for those that have impressed within their academies, giving them the opportunity to be scouted for the England Elite squad.

Congratulations and good luck to Katie, Rebecca and Claire.
