This month’s Player of the Month – is Sarah-Louise Barford of West Leeds Eagles Ladies. The award is sponsored by Peak Sports Nutrition.
This is what Sarah’s coach Laura Wilson had to say about her: “Sarah-Louise Barford is the West Leeds Captain and is often an unsung hero within the team, she gives excellent guidance and honest talk to the team.
“2016 didn’t get off to a good start for the Eagles but Barford has kept the team motivated and led from the front during training and in the games. She has taken our inexperienced players under her wing and encouraged them and guided them, which has helped the team improve and get back to winning ways.
“Barford is extremely passionate about rugby league and her team, I personally couldn’t ask for more in a captain.”
WRLA would like to thank Matty Bullough (coach of Oulton Raidettes) co-owner of Peak Sports Nutrition for their continuing support of the Player of the Month competition.
Player of the Month – each month the coaches put forward the name of a player from their team who they think deserves the award, and the reasons why. The WRLA committee then decide the winner by voting for the most deserved candidate.
