Hitchin Ladies' rugby team are looking for new talent.

They invite any ladies from Hitchin and the surrounding areas to come along to the club and join the team.

The ladies' team has been together for the last three seasons.

Spokesman Kerry Kerslake said: "If you have played before and would like to get back into it, or if you have never played before, you are very welcome to join in.

"It's a great way of getting fit, and it does not matter what size or shape you are in rugby, there is a position for you. The most important point is - it's fun!"

Women's rugby is becoming more popular, although there are still few teams locally.

Kerslake added: "It's a chance for players to learn some basic rules and moves in the game but also to have some fun. The club bar will be open for those wishing to quench their thirst after the training session!
