New ladies’ rugby teams kicked off at Clevedon, with the Under-13s, Under-15s and ladies playing their first matches.
A historic day of rugby was played by the girls and women at Clevedon Rugby Club.
The afternoon was kicked off by the Under-15s team which consists of year 9 and 10 girls from Clevedon playing the girls from Nailsea & Backwell, with Clevedon come out victorious with a 46-34 score.
The Under-13 girls (year 7 and 8) played their 40-minute match, unfortunately losing to the Nailsea and Backwell team.
The Clevedon women’s team, known as the Seahawks, played their first home game against another new women’s team from Thornbury. There was lots of support for both teams, and it was a close game again which saw Thornbury score two tries in the last 10 minutes which saw them win with a final score of 30-22.
The teams are still building as they were all new last season or this season. The club welcome anyone that has an interest in playing and have teams for all ages. If your daughter would like to have a try rugby, please contact Cath at Clevedongirlsrfc@outlook.com for school years 7-10, or Tim at Timshelton2729@gmail.com for school years reception through to year 6.
