Calling all ladies who love mud!

We are looking for more mad people to join our ever expanding and enthusiastic team of merry rugby players! After a fantastic game last Sunday with the lovely girls at Thames we now more than ever have the taste for the game and need as many of you as possible along at training so we can get ourselves fighting fit in time for our next fixture.

Luckily, we have been given the opportunity to help fill in numbers with Thames for their games which is a fantastic opportunity as it gives us the chance to not only play in a proper league but also [as was the case on Sunday] to play a full game with full 15-a-side teams. A novel feeling for most in the team!
However as fantastic as this is, what would be even better would be if we can manage to put out our own team of Millwall Venus players! "Impossible!" I hear you say! But we do have more than enough people if everyone commits and turns up.

Remember girls, the team is what we make it and training is only as good as the people we have coming along and taking part. We have a fantastic group of coaches all with totally different individual strengths and skills who are working really hard to provide us with really good, structured and thorough training but it is really hard to keep the enthusiasm going when there are only very limited numbers turning up to train each week.
We are lucky to be developing a massive amount of support from the club as a whole as well as developing strong links with Thames who are a great team, very established and are willing to share and help develop us as players so we need to take advantage of it while we can!

I know its cold and dark and people are tired and have other commitments but I promise that the more of you that can make the effort the more fun we will have and the better our enjoyment of the game will be.

Remember, if you haven't done so already, to join the Millwall and Venus Facebook groups to keep up to date with all the latest news and social events going on at the club.  Just visit the pages on Facebook and click "Like" to get our messages in your newsfeed.

Hope to see you all at training on Wednesday!
