Excitement builds in the Women’s camp ahead of first fixture

Tomorrow morning will see our Women’s team compete in their first ever game, facing off against Swinton Lionesses at the The Salford Stadium, and our girls are eager to get out on the field.

The Women’s team open up tomorrow’s double header at 11:45am and have been working hard in training to ensure they put in a solid performance.

Salford Red Devils Women’s head coach, Chris Bates said: “Pre-season has been really good, I’m amazed at how this team has turned out. The way the girls have come together and tackled challenges, developed as a team and really learnt to understand each other, is class really.

“The girls are really looking forward to Saturday. We don’t know much about Swinton as they didn’t play in a league last year, so we’ve mainly focused on our own game.

“This game’s a fantastic opportunity and all the girls are really excited.”

Salford Red Devils Women’s captain, Louise Fellingham, commented: “Training has been going really well, everyone has been working hard and improving week on week. Since we’ve come back in the new year, you can tell the intensity has ramped up a notch.

“The team are excited at the prospect of pulling on the Salford jersey for the first time and taking to the field in front of a home crowd. We can’t wait to play at the AJ Bell.

“Playing against the Lionesses will be a valuable challenge for us, but with the experience we have in the squad, we are confident that we can put on a good performance – which we can then build on going into the season.”
