Shipston Ladies are on the rise

Stratford Editorial 6th Apr, 2017   0

SHIPSTON Ladies are celebrating promotion to Warwickshire League Division Two after a highly successful season.

It is a remarkable achievement for a team which was on the brink of folding two seasons ago when dwindling numbers made it difficult to get a full team out each week, resulting in relegation to Division Three.

However, the addition of new senior players and juniors from Shipston High School has enabled the team to drive forward under the careful and respected leadership of captain Jackie Williams.

There is a now a squad of more than 20 players which has made team selection a challenge.

Shipston have enjoyed numerous impressive wins this season including against very strong opposition such as Warwick University and the hard work and commitment was rewarded in finishing second behind Edgbaston 4ths.

As the team move to the next chapter in their history, they are seeking sponsorship to further develop the team. Any support would be greatly received to assist in acquiring new equipment for training or team kit.

Any business or individual interested in sponsoring Shipston Ladies can email Jackie Williams at [email protected].
