Emelia Arbouine (to those of you who do not already know) is our Ladies Captain and the clubs top try scorer in 2019/20.
She has been instrumental in the Ladies team comfortably establishing themselves in their league this season (NC2).
As an interesting statistic, she also became the first person to score for a UK ladies team in continental Europe subsequent to Brexit, when running in our consolation against Suresens in Paris a few weeks ago.
Emelia qualifies for Jamaica via her father, and the Jamaica Rugby Football Union have just selected Emelia to represent them at the 2020 Vista Training Camp in San Diego, California from March 9th to 13th.
This training camp will be instrumental in team selection and preparation for the June 21st Olympic Games Qualifier in France. This is a proud moment for both Emelia and the club. We’ve had a couple of players who have gone on to represent their countries (Bob Mordell and Graham Birkett), and Franco Da Cunha made a number of appearances for the Portugal sevens team before moving to London, but it would be great to have a current player achieve this acclaim.
The club would like to raise the money to cover Emelia’s flights and if you can help please do so by contacting our Treasurer, Mark Smith and he will provide you with details on how to contribute (however small or large) OR there will be £5, £10 and £20 donation options on the till to the bar at the clubhouse to enable you to show your support.
Many thanks for your support,
