HARWICH and Dovercourt Rugby Club’s Lucy Woodley represented the Eastern Counties under-18s in their opening fixture against Middlesex.

Woodley started in the seven shirt at the Twyford Avenue Sports Ground, in London.

Middlesex walked away winners but it was still a great experience for the Harwich youngster.

Woodley has made the jump from under-15s to under-18s this season after progressing through her club's youth section.

She is the first Harwich youth player to represent the Eastern Counties girls at under-18s level and this highlights the hard work being put in by all the volunteers and coaches within the Harwich and Dovercourt Youth and Minis section.
