Ladies 1st XV

Eccles Ladies are the premier women’s rugby team in Greater Manchester and we have been a part of Eccles RFC for over twenty years.

Last season we once again consolidated our position in Championship 1 North, the second tier of women’s rugby in England. Eight of our players were selected for Lancashire, who went on to win the County Championship, and we also had a player represent Scotland.

Training is twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays,19:30-21:00. For season 2018/19 we have a mix of male and female coaches including a specialist strength and conditioning coach.

New players are always welcome; just turn up on the night or alternatively you can contact the Captain, Katie (07725 60717), Head Coach, James (07791 227616) or Team Manager, Nina (07796 382547) for more information. Alternatively, look us up on on social media via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram

If you’re looking for something a little more social, are new to rugby or returning to play, we also have a Ladies 2nd XV. The 2s are a development side ideal for those coming back to rugby after a break, or new to the game You can find out more about ‘The 2s’ here

This season Eccles are pleased to have 2 new main sponsors onboard, Havas Lynx and Virtalis.
