Formed in 1996 with just a handful of non - playing ladies, Tony Grace and Dave Morgan began the task of trying to coach the necessary rugby skills to the enthusiastic recruits. After a few weeks of training, some friendly advice and some arranged fixtures the Ladies entered their first league match in East Midlands 4. At the end of the season they had made their make by finishing a respectable 4th.
1997 - 98 saw the team win their league and being promoted into East Midlands 3
Seasons 1998 - 2000 the ladies carried on in the East Midlands 3 and finished 4th and 2nd. Again they could of gained promotion but at this time due to other commitments the team was struggling and decided it would be better to have another season in this league.
Last season 2000 - 2001 after a big boost of new players the Ladies finally won the league in their final match against Litchfield at home. A well-earned promotion to Midlands 2.
They start the new season in a new league and their aim is to finish in the top half.
The Ladies would all like to thank Dave Morgan for his efforts and dedication as coach who retired at the end of last season and to the entire club for their support.
