Boorman hangs up boots after two decades in rugby
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.
