A sad farewell to our four leavers Claire Graham, Hannah McKeeman, Rowan Cruickshank, and Liz Rivers who move on from the club and onto pastures new. Thank you for the dedication and passion that each one brought to the club and in particular, a thank you to our fierce captain Hannah for all that she's done during her time here. It's always heartbreaking to say goodbye to leavers but with this sadness comes new beginnings as we look forward to welcoming new freshers to the club in September.
