Durham County announce Women’s ‘A’ squad to welcome Eastern Counties to Billingham RUFC

Durham County Women ‘A’ will welcome Eastern Counties Development in an exhibition game at Billingham RUFC, this Saturday.

After just three weeks of trials and training, Durham will take the field for the first time as an ‘A’ team in a friendly opening to the season.

This will be a chance for players that usually play at different rugby clubs across the county, to experience playing on the same team.

Putting out a development squad, builds on the back of last year’s campaign that also saw Durham produce a second team. It demonstrates the growth of the game and the wealth of players wanting to represent their County.

Unfortunately, a number of clubs are still involved in club league fixtures and are therefore unable to put players in for the game.

The team taking to the field on Saturday is as follows:

  Player Club
1 Chelsea Burger Hartlepool Rovers
2 Danielle Coulton Hartlepool Rovers
3 Beth Geehan Sunderland Flames
4 Charmaine Jeffreys Hartlepool Rovers
5 Natasha Kennedy Hartlepool Rovers
6 Rachael Knight Sunderland Flames
7 Olivia Davison Sunderland Flames
8 Amber Stonehouse Sunderland Flames
9 Steph Maddison (C) Sunderland Flames
10 Clarissa Murphy Sunderland Flames
11 Emma Kier Hartlepool Rovers
12 Tara Breslin Sunderland Flames
13 Kirsty Paterson Sunderland Flames
14 Jain Guillaume Acklam Ladies
15 Treen Hardy Sunderland Flames
16 Kirsty Mann Acklam Ladies
17 Dorcus Lunn
18 Kimmii Colvin Hartlepool Rovers
19 Kiera Yorston Sunderland Flames
20 Amy Norton


The game will kick off at 12pm, prior to Billingham V Preston Grasshoppers on the Rugby 365 AGP pitch.
