The matches against Staffordshire and South Yorkshire were all strongly contested but within all the games the standard of play was excellent with numerous examples and displays of great passing, movement and communication.NLDU13 Girls Chesterfield 2

Pete Haskell, NLD U13 Girls Head Coach commented ‘The girls’ development and understanding of the game over the past months has been fantastic and this was shown in this afternoon’s performance. The teams from Staffordshire and South Yorkshire gave the girls a really good test today but in fairness the NLD girls displayed their new rugby skills and increasing confidence really well and as a coaching team we are delighted with the progress that the squad is making’.
