Difficult afternoon for Old Leamingtonians Ladies after falling to Lichfield Greens

Leamington Editorial 6th Mar, 2019   0

OLD Leamingtonians Ladies lost out in gusty conditions last weekend, going down 39-10 to Lichfield Greens in Women’s Championship Midlands 2.

The wet and windy conditions set up for a difficult afternoon, despite Leamingtonians battling hard in the contest.

In the 12th minute, Lichfield opened the scoring through a converted try, before adding a second try shortly after.

By half-time, Lichfield held a 29-0 lead, but Old Leams remained spirited and started to mount a comeback.




Fly-half Pauline Dumont clinched the first points of the afternoon for her side when crossing the whitewash, whilst inside-centre Kate Whitfield followed up with a second try.

Lichfield reminded their opponents of their strength though, and broke through the OL defence which had held firm in the second-half, scoring twice more to finish off the scoring at 39-10.


The result keeps Old Leams Ladies bottom of the division, and play their final fixture of the season at home to fifth-placed Birmingham Moseley Ladies on Saturday March 17th.
