Women’s Silver Lions Roster Announced

Per BAFA Women’s Football, the GB Lions Women’s Flag Development squad was announced yesterday, including #TeamDC’s own Tash Crump, who balled out this season as the Sapphire Series Division Two North Overall MVP, playing for the Staffordshire Surge and following up with a trip to Big Bowl, hosted in Germany this year,  with the Sirens – a combo team of great ballers from across the Britball Nation.

Other stand out names on the roster include BAFA Electorial College Director, Jade Archibald, who led the Northants Titans to such great success in the 2016 Opal Series, and Grace Conway of the Coventry Cougars – Opal 2016 Champions in convincing fashion this past year!

There’s probably loads more standouts, but Flag is far from our forte here at DC – though we’re working on it!

Following the withdrawal of the Czech Association of American Football (ČAAF) as hosts for the 2017 European Championships, it’s great to see the development of the national women’s game continue from strength to strength despite the current turmoil in the international scene.
