Gosport Goddesses kicked their new season off with their first tournament hosted by Andover Seniors and Development Teams; their season started at 1400hrs yesterday (Sunday 8th September 2019). The Goddesses, Gosport’s Ladies Rugby team take part in tournaments around Hampshire with seven other teams; which all take part in the Hampshire Touch Ladies League.
The Goddesses’ Play of the Tournament is the player whom the coaches decided have stood out in the team throughout the tournament.
The Player of the Tournament for the Goddesses at the Andover tournament went to Sorcha Caudrey (aged 22) and is one of the original Goddesses; starting with them aged 19.
Sorcha was awarded Player of the Tournament by Head Coach Jamie Gerathy and and Goddesses Head Fitness Coach Kevin Chambers.
Kevin said “Sorcha has been an integral part of the team; she has a great work ethic and determination. Everyone will miss her and she’s welcome back whenever she wants”.
Goddesses Captain, Joanne Lewis said “Sorcha is a very well deserved winner of this award, as she has stepped up to be my deputy when I haven’t been on the pitch or out injured; and taken to the position of dummy half like a duck to water. Sorcha has been a role model to all the Goddesses for her work rate and supporting the other ladies.
She will be missed as she is off to university next week to study to be a physiotherapist; and we are already planning a Goddesses day out to watch her play contact rugby, which she can’t wait to get stuck into”.
Head Coach, Jamie Gerathy said “Sorcha has taken and flown with everything we have given her; she will have great fun in contact rugby and we will be truly missed by everyone in the Gosport Goddesses Ladies Rugby team”.
