WELWYN Warriors Girls' Rugby Club are to receive £500 from the RFUW Club Development Toolkit Fund.

They are one of only eight women's and girls' clubs in England awarded the maximum available grant from the fund.

Peter Mccullough, Warriors' Under-15 manager, was delighted with the news.

He said: "This grant is an acknowledgement from the women's section of the RFU that Welwyn are a major player in developing girls' rugby in this country."

The cash will be used between June 1, 2008 and May 31 next year on projects to promote girls' rugby in the area.

It will help in funding various events from open afternoons where people can give rugby a try to coaching in schools and publicity.

The grant will effectively be an investment in the long-term future of Welwyn Warriors.
