Roy Reeve NLD U18 Girls Coach commented “The Coaches Neil Spechley, Neil Whithead & I are so happy for the Girls who made it through the Midlands Trials. All the girls attended, supported & worked hard despite a tough campaign to develop their Rugby Skills during the NLD programme they truly earned being successful, a lot more to come from all the Girls for sure.”

“To those girls who were unfortunate not to have been selected we hope you take the feedback from the Academy coaches use this to move forward and come back firing next season” said NLD Women & Girls Chairman Neil Clack.
