A further three players have committed their 2020/21 seasons to Stone Rugby Club, adding to an already impressive men’s and women’s roster.

Two more talented players from last season’s Roses team have signed on again as the women’s side continues to prepare for the upcoming campaign, whenever that may start.

Utility back Bethany Massey, who is also the team’s social secretary, has pledged allegiance to Stone going forward.

A spokesperson for Stone Rugby Club said: “Beth played for the Roses last year and did so to awesome effect. 

“Absolutely fearless in her tackles she chops down anything in her path with perfect technique. She is a skilled runner and you would never know it was her first year of senior rugby. 

“Beth was also pivotal off the pitch in her role as social secretary. Beth is widely loved by all club members and we are excited to have her back again this year.”

Next season is shaping up to be a promising one for the Roses

Joining her is fellow teammate Sharon Norcop also stays on with the Roses having first picked up the sport last year at the age of 48.

The prop won Coaches’ Player of the Year last season after “dominating the row” in the matches she featured in.

The spokesperson continued: “At 48 years of age Sharon decided to take up rugby, and what an impact she’s had on the Roses. 

“Sharon has taken in all the information given to her all season long and she got better and better every week. A real superstar and top club member.”

Stone also confirmed that another player had confirmed he would be a part of the men’s team as it re-enters the RFU England Leagues once again next term, being placed in the Midlands 5 West (South) division.

Alex Evans had previously worked with the side’s coaching team and now the youngster is looking forward to pulling on a match day jersey during the 2020/21 campaign.

The club welcomed the “versatile” centre, describing him as a “great addition” to the team.
