GREENOCK Wanderers Girls' team are going from strength to strength as numbers continue to increase.

The girls' section, under the guidance of coaches MT Crumlish, Martin Power, Diane Hughes and club officials AJ Guthrie, development officer, and John Dyer, director of rugby, are impressing the rest of the club with their commitment and drive to improving themselves as individuals and as a team.

AJ said: "It's great to see the girls getting the recognition that they deserve both within the club and in the community.

"The girls and coaches work incredibly hard to make sure that their sessions are always fun, exciting and bring new challenges each week.

"The results of their hard work are plain to see, with numbers still on the up, the strongest they have ever been for girls rugby at Greenock Wanderers."

Last week, the Wanderers celebrated Scottish Women and Girls in Sport Week, posting a different story or set of opinions each day to mark the event on social media.

AJ said: "It was amazing to hear all of the reasons why our girls enjoy playing rugby here at GWRFC.

"Not only did it confirm, but really emphasised that the girls are more than just a team, they are like a family.

"The really pleasing thing to hear and see is how welcoming the girls are to new players, but this really isn't a surprise at all, they're a fantastic group.

"Women and girls rugby is the next biggest thing in my opinion.

"I can see that side of the game really exploding in the next few years, something we're all excited about!"

Wanderers girls currently train once a week, on Monday evenings at 5.30pm.
