Valkyries open 2016/2017 campaign against Aylesford Bulls

  • +1

The newly-named Worcester Valkyries will begin their 2016/17 Women’s Premiership campaign against Aylesford Bulls Ladies on Sunday 11 September at Sixways (kick-off 2pm).

After reaching the play-offs last season, the women will this year be looking to push on to try and claim the Premiership title, which they won for the first time back in the 2012/13 campaign.

You can cheer the Valkyries on at Sixways for FREE at every home match with games taking place on the brand-new Artificial Grass Pitch.

And, on Saturday 24 September, fans will be treated to a bumper afternoon of rugby at Sixways on the main pitch with Warriors battling Sale Sharks at 3pm – before the Valkyries take on Bristol Rugby Ladies straight after.

Throughout the season, we’ll be bringing you news and reports from the Valkyries every gameweek.
