Stevenage return after four years - and our U15s get a game!!!!

Its been nearly four years since we last welcomed Stevenage to Legends Lane. In our first season we had a memorable home-and-away series with Stevenage either side of New Year 2005 where we came out ahead - just - but only because Carla could kick goals better than her opposite number. 

After that girls rugby at our two clubs went different ways and by 2005/6 there was no team at North Road for us to play. So its good news that the latest attempt to revive the game at (geographically) our nearest neighbouring club appears to be the most successful - indeed at U15 rather more successful than us in recent years. They made their debut at Herts 7s last season, and will now be joining us this weekend for the visit of Wimborne.

The greatest news to come out of this will be for our U15s who will now have someone to play with. If Sunday goes well it opens up all sorts of possibilities for our small but loyal juniors - including maybe training specifically for their age group, as well as regular fixtures. It also potentially puts the future of girls rugby in North Herts in general on a much stronger footing.
