Letchworth Lionesses are the latest addition to the growing number of teams at Letchworth Rugby Club.
The team, which have now played its first competitive game under the ready 4 rugby format, was only formed in July this year.
It started life as group using rugby to keep fit but soon the call of competition proved too enticing and the team blossomed.
They aim to play competitive rugby early in the new year but the opening contest exceeded all expectations.
Playing against two experienced teams from Shelford, the Lionesses scored first and last during the afternoon, showing great skill and commitment and matching Shelford all the way.
Coach Nick Winwood said: "Despite much of the team never having played before, they have come a huge way in skill, knowledge and have bonded amazingly as a team.
"As coaches we could not be prouder of the performance."
