Back to the real world: the season ahead

So - the World Cup is over and its back to reality.

The new season is a new beginning at Letchworth as all of the girls who set up the club have gone, as have most of the adults. Its going to be a season of rebuilding but, on the plus side, we have more or less the same number of girls that the section stared with in 2003 - so we know what can be done.

The good news is that, thanks to Amanda Bate - who helped get girls rugby going in the county - we look like we will be playing with Old Albanians his season, which means that we will now have a full season of fixtures to look forward to.

This is also a great time to bring new players into the team. Not only has women's rugby never been so popular and so talked about, but at Letchworth new players will not be held back, having to force their way into an existing team. So bring along your friends - there has never been a better time to play rugby!

In the meanwhile, the first big date is the county trials - and they are only two weeks away. Everyone who played last season should be able to get into one of the squads, which (with the new structure) have never been more important.
