OCT

Millwall’s ladies team, Venus, played a friendly game against East London in preparation for their first season in the London Development League. East London Ladies will also feature in that league and so this was good test for the Canary Wharf based Venus team.

The two teams were evenly matched to start with. Venus showed good skill in the scrum and in attack but it was a few tackling errors in defence that gave East London the win.

Venus showed grit and determination to keep fighting and a great phase of play dominated by the forwards starting in their own 22 resulted in a well deserved final try for Venus’ most capped player, Louise Norris, with the last play of the game.

The committed performance led Venus trainer, Scott Vinnicombe, to comment “It was a forwards game with some amazing hard fought tries. With a little bit of work, we can beat them next time”.

“A fantastic and exiting game to watch” – Caroline Dieleman, Venus Manager

Millwall Venus Tries: Hayley Whitehead, Ellaine Gelman, Louise Norris.
