Girls trophies get a new home

Over the 6 years that the girls' section of Letchworth rugby club has been in existance, they have collected a number of shields and plaques commemorating matches and have won a number of trophies at competitions.

At first, the trophies were housed in whatever convenient nook or cranny could be found in the clubhouse but, as the number grew, it became more and more difficult to find a suitable place for new awards. Furthermore, it was not possible to view the collection properly and there was an increasing danger that some items might be lost. To preserve the collection, it was moved temporarily to a home - my home, actually - pending a proper cabinet being provided at the clubhouse.

The waiting is now over! Last week, a purpose built cabinet for the girls section was put up in the clubhouse and the trophies were returned to their rightful place -

Altogether there are 15 trophies - 10 for achievements on the field and 5 commemorative pieces. Amongst the collection are commemorative plaques from two Canadian touring sides, 'Fair Play' trophies from the Regional 10s and the National 10s, the 2006 Rochford 10s U17s trophy, the 2007 RFU President's XV award for modernisation and two U18s RFUW National 7s Plates (2007 and 2009).

But the really good news is that there's room in the cabinet for more trophies next season!
