Rebecca to Captain the Lionesses!

21 May 2021

Ahead of the Swinton Lionesses open-age team’s debut this coming weekend, Head Coach Martina Greenwood has selected her first team captain.

Rebecca Roden will already be well known to many Swinton fans, as of course she is an avid supporter of the Lions herself. It therefore seems very appropriate to have a Swintonian installed as the women’s first skipper.

Martina explained, “I am very pleased to announce that our first ever woman to captain a Swinton Lionesses team is Rebecca Roden. I rang Rebecca and her family on Thursday evening to let her know and she was delighted and honoured to have been chosen. The players are now looking forward to their first ever women’s clash against a formidable Fryston team on Sunday.”

Rebecca has also received many congratulatory messages from her team-mates, to which she replied, “I am so honoured to be named the captain of our team! We have a great bunch of girls and I cannot wait to be playing alongside you all! Let’s go girls 2021!”
