BRIDGWATER & Albion RFC Ladies played their first ever match on Sunday.

The visitors to College Way were Aretians RFC, from Bristol, and in the true spirit of rugby Bridgy lent their opponents three players to even up the sides.

Aretians ran out 54-36 winners in a highly entertaining game which was a brilliant experience for the Albion players.

There was some great rugby played on both sides and the Albion ladies section can look forward to a bright future, starting with more regular fixtures next season.

The Albion squad was as follows: Fiona Staples, Mya Andrews, Connie Rooney, Abbey Alderwick, Shanara Palmer, Leighanne Ricketts, Kira Hill, Laura Paynter, Danielle Staples, Becca Stone; Tazmin Selway, Phoebe Alderwick, Ayisha Hall, Jess Matthews, Karen Norman, Annetonia Williams, Michelle Blackford, Beth Davies, Chloe Underhill;
