Project Girls Rugby at the Rec

Story posted on

Frome College took their ever-improving girls’ rugby team to a seven-a-side touch rugby tournament called ‘Project Rugby’ in December, held at the Recreational Ground in Bath, which was organised by the Bath Rugby Foundation.

Matthew Jones, lesson supervisor reports, “Prior to competing at the Rec, the girls were part of a five-week coaching programme provided by the foundation to encourage the participation and development of minority groups in rugby. The programme ran every Wednesday after school in place of the regular training sessions, and we would like to extend our thanks to coaches Becks and Curtis, who delivered such a fantastically varied and in-depth course in such a short space of time.

“During the tournament Frome College’s squad of ten played five 15-minute matches, recording three wins and two losses, beating Hayesfield, Somervale Penguins and Norton Hill, but losing to Somervale Gloves and Writhlington School.  The team will now start to work towards their next tournament in April at Weston Hornets RFC with ambitions of progressing to the next round, hopefully playing a friendly fixture during their preparations. If you would like to get involved and start playing rugby then please come along to training, every Wednesday after school from3-4pm, on the bottom field rugby pitch.

“I would also like to thank the girls for their continued efforts, hard work and dedication during training, which is really starting to shine through during their displays on the field. 

“The squad is constantly developing and improving, and I think the best is yet to come. Well done to Maddie Howes, Layla Thomas, Hannah Bird, Megan Corp, Cassia Bell, Emma Butland Smith, Josephine Cowley, Izzy Neale, Sophie Gilson and Alisha Coulson.”
