Katie wins RFU Young Volunteer award

At a surprise presentation during today's practice, club chairman David Sharp presented Katie with the RFU's Young Volunteer Award - which she can been seen proudly modelling below.

The award - which Joe also won last year - has been awarded by the RFU in recognition not only of Katie's contribution on the field and within the section, but also for her work with the girls at Highfield and with the U12 tag team last season.

With the latter in mind it is therefore perhaps worth winding the clock back a a bit four years to the days when Katie herself was an U14 tag player, representing North Hertfordshire in the 2004 Herts Youth Games in a team that also included Hayley and Ruby.

About half of the girls came from Hitchin RFC - and they promptly disappeared to who knows where after returning to Hitchin (a great pity as there were two or three VERY good players amongst them).

The Letchworth contingent, on the other hand - reinforced by the odd friend and (at the time) smaller sister - came back to Legends Lane in September to form their own team. On that first day we had eight girls - with Katie forming the entire U17 team on her own - but within six weeks the squad had doubled in size, Milton Keynes were put to the sword... and the rest is history!


  1. Congrats to Katie. Hard work and effort like this needs to be recognised and rewarded.
    It's this sort of effort which will continue to grow the game.

    Well Done
