BRANTFORD HARLEQUINS RFC EXPAND COACHING STAFF FOR 2019 OWL CAMPAIGN

Following up on an undefeated 2018 campaign in the Niagara Rugby Union (NRU) A division, the Brantford Harlequins Rugby Football Club Senior Women’s Team (“Harlequins”) are pleased to accept their promotion to Rugby Ontario’s Ontario Women’s League (“OWL”). The Harlequins are entering  “A” and “development” sides into the OWL, and have joined forces with the Norfolk Harvestor’s to bring their exciting and dynamic brand of rugby into 2019.

“We are looking forward to the continued development of both Harlequins & Harvestor’s in 2019” says Ian Fitzgerald, Rugby Ontario Women’s Program Lead and Canada U18 7’s assistant coach. “I’m looking forward to developing the combined  forces of both clubs. We’ve been playing together for several season in the Junior 7’s league and we see this as a natural progress to enhance our players & the game of rugby”.

For the upcoming season, the Harlequins have brought in a star studded supporting cast to Coaches Fitzgerald and Coach Ken Courser. “We have brought in some long-term playing members to help bring their expertise and experience to some of the younger players” says Courser, Rugby Ontario Hall of Fame member, “From Canada level playing experience to OUA All-Stars, we expect to develop through each game of the upcoming season to develop each and every athlete to the best of their ability. We know the OWL is a significant step up in playing quality and combining with Norfolk and Coach Fitzgerald, we feel we are positioned to compete in each and every game”.

Joining the Harlequins coaching staff in 2019, along with Coach Fitzgerald, is former Canada U20 player Brooke Newsome – now plying her skills as a member of the Western University Mustangs. Her experience with winning multiple Canadian National Championships and representing Canada will be invaluable to developing the next generation of women’s rugby talent in Brantford & Norfolk. Joining Brooke is long-time Harlequin Lisa Shellington, former OUA All-Star and Brantford’s Director of Junior Women’s Rugby, Meagan Hart – another OUA All-Star with Brock Badgers.

The Harlequins play their matches at George Jones Fields located at 22 Powerline Road in Brantford, Ontario. “We are always looking for new players – either new to the game or new to the Harlequins – especially as we look to preparing for the 2019 OWL Season” says Courser. “I would encourage anyone that is interested to contact us, as we’ll have a top-notch coaching staff to go with our motivated athletes and one of the best rugby facilities in Ontario!”

Players interested in playing with the Harlequins can contact Ken Courser at kcourser@salittube.com . More information can be found at www.brantfordharlequins.com or www.brantfordharlequins.com/team-srwomen.html
