Warrington Women add another trio of signings

Steven Hughes

Warrington Women’s side have announced the signings of Lucy Eastwood, Kacy Haley and Charlotte Foley for the 2022 season.

Eastwood, who plays at halfback, has signed from Castleford. She was previously part of the side that won the League Leaders Shield in 2019. She played at centre in their Grand Final defeat against Leeds.

In 2020, she was part of a historic loan deal. This saw herself, Hollie Dodd, Jasmine Cudjoe and Esme Reynolds move to the south of France before the pandemic hit.

Reacting to the move, she told the club website: “It’s something completely new with the switch over from Yorkshire but it’s a challenge that really excites me.

“I can’t wait to get started and meet all the new people. I really like the attitude of everyone here and the ambition of where they want to take the Women’s game to is really positive. The knowledge of the coaches here was a big factor too.  I believe they’re going to improve me as a player a lot.”

Warrington continuing to add

Meanwhile, Haley comes from Bradford, and plays in the second row or at centre. She has been in the Women’s Super League since the first season back in 2017. That year, she played for Featherstone, and helped them to the final.

She added:“I was looking for a new adventure and Warrington offered me an incredible opportunity both in the short term and long run.

“I want to become a better player and I believe the coaches here and the girls around me can push me to improve and progress.

“I’m excited to be part of a new squad with a good group of teammates. We’ve got a big pre-season ahead and I’m excited for what’s to come.”

Finally, Foley, who also plays in the halves, comes from Wigan. She was involved in the first Warriors side that won the Super League in their debut year. In addition, she kicked the winning conversion.

She said:“I had a good chat with Wez [Lee Westwood, Head Coach] and they’ve got a really good thing going here at Warrington. I think I’m going to really enjoy playing here and I’m excited to get stuck into pre-season now with the girls.

“The main aim is promotion, to win some silverware for Warrington and to then go on and be a big name in the Women’s game.”
