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.
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.
