Barrow Raiders Ladies are excited to be holding open trials ahead of the 2024 season.

The trials are a good opportunity for players who wish to be part of the Raiders Ladies setup, with opportunities in both the first team and reserves. As part of our continued attempts to strengthen the female player pathway across the area, there are also plans in place to run an U19s side from next season.

Barrow Ladies will play in Group 1 of the Betfred Women’s Super League next season after securing promotion from Group 2 via the play-offs in 2023.

Group 1 offers the highest level of female club rugby league in the UK, and it will feature the Raiders for the first time in 2024.

The open trials will take place from 11:30am-1:30pm on Saturday 25 November at the Matt Johnson Prestige Stadium.

They will be led by head coach Amanda Wilkinson – who we are delighted to announce has agreed a new deal to remain at the club ahead of the forthcoming season. She will be assisted at the trials by her trusted coaching staff. 

PLEASE NOTE: Players must be aged 17yrs+ to feature for our Betfred Women’s Super League team and our reserves team, but we encourage players aged 16 to come along.
