Woodbridge Amazons looking for new players

WOODBRIDGE Amazons are looking for new players to bolster their ranks.

The tough-tackling girls play in National Challenge LeagUe SE1 and are just two steps away from Premiership rugby.

They train on Wednesday evenings and, as I encountered during a training session last year for a feature I penned, they are a very friendly bunch – albeit a friendly bunch that are incredibly uncompromising in the tackle.

The team are looking for players of all abilities, to play in any position, although the front-row is slightly depleted at the moment.

Amazons player, Sarah Thomas, said: “I would encourage anyone to come along and give rugby a go.

“We are a friendly, fun club and are part of a bigger set-up with the other teams at the club.”

Ipswich Town skipper Luke Chambers feels criticism of him playing at right-back has been unjustified, but admits he’d love to nail down his preferred position of centre-back again.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy will continue to deploy a safety-first tactical approach heading into back-to-back home games.

Ipswich Town have nine players out injured for tomorrow night’s visit of Championship high-fliers Brighton, but the good news is that Grant Ward and Teddy Bishop are both available for selection.

Mick McCarthy has plenty of credit in the bank at Ipswich Town, but that could rapidly start to run out unless things begin to change.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy conceded his team were ‘poor’ in today’s 1-0 defeat at Leeds United and admitted a lack of goals is a concern.

Chris Wood’s first half goal was enough to secure Leeds United a fully-deserved 1-0 home victory over Ipswich Town this afternoon with Mick McCarthy’s men lacking an attacking edge.

Hoping for back-to-back away league wins, Mick McCarthy’s Ipswich visit Gary Monk’s Leeds.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy reacts incredulously to the merest suggestion captain Luke Chambers’ position in the team is under threat.
