Your News Firefighters boost for Liverpool St Helens girls

The World Firefighters Games held on Merseyside last year was a major multi-sport success for the area, but as Liverpool St Helens RFC underlined recently, there are also lasting benefits that will flow from the event.

LSH will unveil the latest development in their ambitious expansion plans with the launch of the Girls Under 15s team at Preston Grasshoppers on Sunday week (January 25).

And thanks to the support Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service - World Firefighters Games 08 Legacy Programme, the new team will take the field in a new set of Samourai shirts.

The 30-strong squad was invited along to St Helens Community Fire Station where they were welcomed by Deputy Chief Fire Officer Mike Hagen and World Firefighters Games Legacy Programme General Manager, Richie Davis.

The entire squad, along with LSH Head Coach Paul Woodward, First Team Captain Phil Kearns and representatives from the RFUW were given a tour of the Fire Station and presented with their new kit.

RFU Community Rugby Coach John Foster said he was delighted with the progress the girls had made as they have been training in all weather conditions and they are desperate to start playing matches.

Rugby Development Officer Mark Sutcliffe and RFUW Club Coach Officer Mark Harper were also very impressed with the team which is coached by Becky Armstrong, Cara Pendleton & Keiron Tucker and were delighted that a number of the team had already been selected for Lancashire County Trials.

The Club is now seeking to form a Girls Under 18s side. If anyone is interested, please call Becky Armstrong on 07729 305225 or John Foster on 0773 8648944.
