MILLWALL Venus made history on Saturday in the ladies' first ever appearance on Millwall Park.

Despite running in five tries – all touched down by Leigh Dargan – Venus lost out to east London rivals Hackney.

But a record Venus crowd cheered on the team for their home debut after Tower Hamlets Council's decision to allow adult rugby on the park.

Angela Gianotti converted two Venus tries to complete Millwall's tally on the day.

Team manager Lizzie Paige said afterwards: “It was tough but we enjoyed the match.

“Playing on the park was amazing and meant the number of supporters was far higher than normal.

“This gave the girls the incentive to play what many said was their best game ever.”
