Warrington holding trials for women’s team

Warrington are holding trials for their newly formed women’s side.

The women’s team will be led by community coach Lee Westwood, supported by Ben Westwood as assistant coach and team manager will be Sky Sports’ Angela Powers.

The coaching team will also include Andy Marsh, Estelle Graham and Ryan Cartledge.

Warrington are holding open-age trial sessions at Victoria Park’s Asics Stadium on Monday, December 3, at 7pm.

Training sessions for those girls aged 12 to 16 are held every Monday evening between 6pm and 7pm.

Lee Westwood said: “It is an exciting challenge as we look to develop the women’s and girls’ game in Warrington as it will help support the growth of the women’s game already taking place within our sport.

“We will be entering the women’s championship to establish the foundations which will enable us to achieve our vision of becoming a competitive side in Super League in 2020, while developing our very own future women’s Super League players through our girls only teams; ensuring we provide a pathway for all girls from 11 years old to open age.”

Wolves’ chief executive Karl Fitzpatrick commented: “It is fantastic to see the women’s game growing in popularity and as a club we are proud to be a part of it.

“Rugby League is at the heart of the town so the re-introduction of the women’s and girls’ game within Warrington is a positive step forward.

“Earlier this year we hosted the women’s challenge cup finals day at the stadium which was a big success and we were delighted to be involved in raising awareness of the game, and look forward to seeing it grow from strength to strength.”
