DEVIZES Ladies’ excellent season was rewarded with call-ups for number eight Kate Stradling, prop Sarah Ennis, second row Leah Reynolds, back row Emily Pratt, fly-half Alice Bowerbank and winger Georgia Walker for the Dorset & Wilts team.

Pratt, Reynolds, Stradling, Bowerbank and Walker all starred in the 50-12 win over Cornwall, Walker bagging a try.

The call-ups came after Devizes celebrated their most successful season to date, under the guidance of coaches Andy Paterson, Leon Sheppard and Keith Butler, winning promotion from South West North Two.

Training for the next campaign begins on Wednesday, June 7 (6.45pm) at Devizes Rugby Club on London Road, with the club welcoming potential new players.

Earlier in the year the Devizes Ladies section was highlighted by the RFU for inclusion in their satellite club program to encourage ladies and girls in to the sport, one of two clubs selected in Wiltshire for this accolade.

Next season’s campaign will be led on the field by captain Denise Warbutton and vice-captains Leah Reynolds and Alice Bowerbank.
