The U18 Girls team have had a successful and enjoyable season. A transitional phase for the team with a large group stepping up from U15s has seen the team develop in stature, skill and success throughout the season.

With a strong pack the development and progression have seen greatest acceleration within the back line making the transition to a more senior and physical grade of rugby with mentoring from the more senior players.

Competing locally and in South West cup competitions the team have competed strongly with close results.

This has been recognised at both County and Regional level with the team well represented in the Gloucestershire U18s squad by Thyrza Peters, Rebecca Wells, Rebecca Pope, Shannon Stroud, Jo Brame, Olivia King, Verity Tipper, Kayley Bidder. I think that’s right Thyrza Peters has also been selected for South West regional squad and England pathway. At a coaching level Amanda Bartlett the U18s head coach has been performing the Team Manager role for the County Ladies Squad.

Overall a successful season leaving a difficult coaching dilemma to select player of the season an most improved player awards for the upcoming club presentation evening.

Following the changes announced by the Government on Wednesday 9 September in relation to the ban on groups of more than six people meeting socially indoors and outdoors. Although social gatherings of more than six people will be banned in England from Monday 14 September, the Government has confirmed that organised sports and activities that have been through return to play protocols can continue. With the exception of clubs impacted by local lockdown restrictions, we remain at Stage D on the Return to Community Rugby Roadmap. The rugby community can continue to organise non-contact fixtures with other clubs using Ready4Rugby and other touch rugby activity.
