Ashfield RUFC started a girls section in the summer of 2011 & just over 3 years later their U15 squad have capped off an unbelievable year by being crowned ‘Junior Team of the Year’ at the Active Ashfield Sports Awards Evening.
The 2013/14 squad of 17 girls lost only once all season on their way to winning the RFU Midlands U15 league title. They also had 13 girls selected to play for NLD, 8 of these girls went to trial for the Midlands squad & 4 of them played in games against the North, South West & London. To finish off a fantastic season the girls went to Lichfield to compete in the RFU National 7s competition were they came away as Bowl winners after beating teams from all over England.
In just over 3 years the girls section at Ashfield has gone from strength to strength now fielding teams at U13, U15 & U18 with over 30 girls playing at Ashfield RUFC & 20+ girls playing in their respective NLD squads this season.
