Mansfield Girls Get Royal Recognition
Mansfield Girls section has been expanding quickly over the last 12 months with 25 new girls signing up to play at the club. This means they boast an exceptionally strong U13 set up with an exciting future ahead of them – something that has not escaped the notice of Prince Harry who is Vice Patron of the Rugby Football Union.
Darren Sayer whose daughter Elysia plays at the club wrote to the rugby loving royal to praise the dedication and commitment of the club in their efforts over the last couple of years. Prince Harry responded with a letter supporting the clubs efforts in developing the Girls game.
Pete Haskell, who runs the girls section said, “To receive a letter from HRH Prince Harry about the development and progress of Mansfield RFC’s Girls Section over the past two seasons is a great boost for all the players, coaches and parents involved and only encourages us to continue our hard work for the future. We look forward to getting more girls involved with rugby within our section of the club”.
