The club are pleased to announce that our 1861 Ladies team have been granted league entry by the RFU for the upcoming season. The team has the backing of both Sale FC Rugby and Sale Sharks and over the past 12 months has grown in both stature and size and will be playing National Challenge 1 North West.
We would however, like to highlight our disappointment that the RFU decided that we will only be entered at level 4. This is despite the strong case we made to play at a higher level, backed up with documented evidence of our infrastructure and squad. We felt that for the good of the game in the area, that a level 3 entry should have been offered.
However, as a club we accept the decision and will now focus our efforts to support 1861 Director of Rugby Andy Hughes, the coaches and the 40 strong squad of players as they look to gain promotion in their first competitive season. The fixture list is now out and I urge you all to come along and support the 1861 down at the CorpAcq throughout the season.
Ahead of pre-season training on the 2nd July Sale 1861 are delighted to announce four new signings to the team.
Nikki Cowell, Cath Ansell, Lyndsey Dorries and Helen Johnson sign for Sale 1861 in their first season of competition. We will be releasing the fixture list over the next week so people can get involved in the joint venture between Sale FC Rugby and Sale Sharks.
