Women’s World Cup Inspires NLD Players at Development Session

Yesterday NLD were delighted to welcome nearly 60 Girls to Mansfield RFC to take part in a Girls Player Development Session run by the Nottinghamshire Rugby Development Team.


Players across the U13, U15 and U18 age groups came from clubs in all corners of NLD for the session, which had a star attraction – the Women’s Rugby World Cup!!

Having taken part in rugby activities throughout the day the Girls all had the opportunity to have their photographs taken with the famous trophy.

The coaching teams were really impressed with the levels of skill and enthusiasm on offer from the Girls and with the parental support many of whom stayed for the day.

NLD Women & Girls Chairman Neil Clack said ‘It is great to have so many girls keen to get involved throughout NLD, the standard was excellent and it would be fantastic to think we could have future England, (Scotland, Wales, Ireland), players in our midst!’

Photographs of the day are all available to view on the NLD Facebook page.
