Unfortunately, a tough decision was reached on Wednesday evening to withdraw the ladies team from the league.
Since the return to training after COVID restrictions were lifted we had to look at replacing the management setup plus search for new players. This all had to happen within a 3 week period. We got the fist part sorted with Jason Pugh, Alan Moore and Lewis McKinley stepping in to take control.
However, despite the commitment from the guys it wasn’t to be as there just wasn’t enough players committed to playing. Although this may be the end for now we will look at a return in the near future. There is a great number of girls showing great ability in the Academy. Now it’s time to rebuild for the future.
The club would like to thank all the coaches and players that have been part of the ladies team the last 5 years. In those 5 years there has been lots of success including 2 league titles and numerous cup finals. A special thanks to team captain Tracy Orr and Colette Young for their commitment to the team in those 5 years.
