IT turned out to be a hugely successful weekend of ladies rugby last weekend as the Midlands Ladies Touch League was hosted by Pershore RFC.

On what was the second 'Super Sunday' of the summer, over 100 ladies turned out for their clubs; Pershore, Berry Hill, Stratford, Redditch, two teams from Bredon, Five Ways, Ross, Woodrush, Camp Hill, Ledbury and Rugby SA.

In a closely fought final, it was Bredon who lifted the cup trophy after beating Pershore.

Stratford won the Plate, Woodrush won the Ball and FiveWays lifted the Vase.

Fizz Bewley, Administrator of the Midlands Ladies Touch League and chair of Pershore Touch said: “It has been a wonderful day of ladies Touch and it is really heartening to see that as many ladies now enjoy this sport as before Covid. 

"It is a fast and open form of rugby, which involves teamwork, fitness and great ball handling skills and it can be enjoyed at so many levels, from grassroots complete beginners, right up to elite, international competition.”
