Since the summer of 2001 Morpeth RFC has been actively developing rugby for girls between the ages of 12 and 18, and have now formed one of the North East’s most successful girls rugby teams. Girl’s rugby is not new to Morpeth as they have always encouraged young girls between the ages of 6 and 12 to play mixed gender tag and contact rugby within the clubs mini section. But owing to the lack of a girls section, players either moved club or worst still gave up their short careers.

Following a very successful ‘Active Sport’ sponsored Northumberland Youth Games at Berwick in September 2001, Rob Winter, our current Ladies team manager, coached the Castle Morpeth Girls Tag Team, and accumulated 15 players from the Castle Morpeth and Wansbeck regional squads to assemble the core of the girls playing at Morpeth RFC today.

Morpeth U15 and U18 teams have accumulated a great deal of local and regional silverware, and have had numerous players representing Northumberland, the North East, and England U20 squads.

In September 2005 Morpeth Ladies took the field for the first time playing eleven friendly matches during the course of the season and winning nine. Morpeth Ladies currently play social rugby against local developing teams and play numerous tournaments at 7's,10's and 15 a side during the season.

Training takes place on Thursday evenings and matches are played on Sunday afternoons. Training is divided into age groups with u12's, u15's, u18's and senior ladies, all of which contribute to a lively atmosphere. Girls, from Year 7  upwards, and adults  are welcome to come along and try your hand at rugby.
