Boor­man hangs up boots af­ter two decades in rugby

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

VICKY Boor­man called time on more than two decades of rugby in style this week as Che­sham Stags beat Rom­ford & Gidea Park.

The Stagettes’ hooker and cap­tain, who has spent the past 20 sea­sons at Che­sham, hung up her boots in the wake of a 19-7 win over their Es­sex op­po­nents, who had beaten them 17-0 in the re­verse fix­ture only last month.

The win com­pleted a fine end to the ladies’ first sea­son at Women’s Cham­pi­onship South East 2 level, fol­low­ing pro­mo­tion last sea­son, and it pro­vided a fit­ting end to the ca­reer of a loyal ser­vant.

Loose-head prop Amy-Louise Ka­ley got the skip­per’s re­tire­ment party started with the open­ing try, con­verted by fly-half Allie Hill, be­fore another of open-side flanker added a sec­ond.

The vis­i­tors got on the score­board the Kim for­wards,

War­ren, with a try of their own, but a third try from inside-cen­tre Nikitta Flyn en­sured post-match farewells to Boor­man would be sweet ones.
