Staffordshire Ladies - 2015/2016
Staffordshire Ladies are very proud to announce their squad for their first game this Sunday, against East Midlands.
Location: Lichfield RUFC
The county programme has gone from strength to strength over the past few years, testament to the development of club rugby in Staffordshire. We are delighted to announce that we have 5 clubs represented in the squad, showing true support from all our Ladies teams in Staffordshire. This year is the first year of the new Pilot Programme, giving all counties the opportunity to reach the finals at the end of May. With 3 pool games back to back, Staffordshire have opted for a large squad to potentially cover 5 games in May. This weekend's squad has representatives from: Cannock, Essington, Lichfield, Longton and Wolverhampton. All players have been honoured by the presence of World Cup winning coach Graham Smith mentoring not only the further development of players but the coaches too.
Bali Salisbury is in his 2nd year as Head coach and is very excited about the programme this year. Bali Stated: “ We have been training hard for the past two months ensuring that we really work on developing players and preparing them for the next step up from Club Rugby, in the development League. We have a great mix of experience and young talent, hoping that this has created the winning partnership that we are after.”
