The Lithgow Workies Wolves held the first of its player signings for the 2019 Women’s League Tag season on Tuesday, November 20.
According to coach John Legge majority of the 2018 squad were returning for next season which was a very positive sign for the club.
“We’re please to have re-signed 2018 Wolves League Tag player of the year Megan Embleton and coaches award winner Sharni Channing with big expectations for the 2019 season,” he said.
Legge also said the club was excited to welcome back Kirsty Willmott to the Wolves after a few seasons away.
The club have also had interest from several new players to join the team.
Legge said the squad combined into a strong unit last season in what was a very even and competitive 2018 Group 10 competition.
“As coach I was very proud of the girls achievements and I am confident with the side from last year, together with our new inclusions we will be able to achieve an even stronger result in 2019,” he said.
He also said the 2018 undefeated premiers Bathurst St Pats would again be the benchmark for the competition.
"I know we have the side that can frustrate them in defense and we will be working hard on our attacking game in the pre season to put us in a position to match the top sides in the competition,” Legge said.
"I am very excited to see what we can achieve next year.”
He said the key for the squads success would most definitely be training which would commence in January.
The side will be managed by Tannya Boza and lead around the park by captain Tiff Willmott.
The Wolves will be holding a barefoot bowls barbecue at 3pm at the Lithgow Workies on Sunday, December 16.
Legge urged new and old players to come along.
