More development support from RFUW

... plus a shade more confusion.

The RFUW have appointed ten "Club and Coach Officers" (CCOs) for the new seasonto support the "development of women’s and girls rugby across the country" with an "extensive remit" which will include player development, coach development and club development. Each have been given a region... but at this stage its not clear who will be "ours" as, quite conceivibly, we could have one of three. This is because, although each has been given a "region" they do not seem to be the same "regions" as the 11 currently used by RFUW (where we are "East") or eight used by RFU (where we are "London North").

Anyway our most likely CCO will be Andrew Skipper who will be CCO of the "East". However as he is based in Ipswich its possible that we might not see too much of him. So it is possible that we might see more of Maggie Alphonsi who will be the "London" CCO. But London is a big place, and one we have never felt ourselves "part of", so it is quite likely that she will have her work cut out covering the capital without having to trail up to remote outposts in north Hertfordshire.

Our third bet therefore might be one Laura Jayne Adams who is moving from the position of a Regional Judo(!) Development Officer and Community Rugby Coach to be CCO for "East Midlands". She will be based in Northamptonshire, which is a bit nearer than Ipswich, and being as we are increasingly getting involved in East Mids activities it is not unreasonable to suspect that she may take an interest in us.
