The Future is Bright for Beth!
Durham County Women’s Captain, Beth Blacklock, who represents DMP Durham Sharks, will be leaving the Northeast this summer having been snapped up by Harlequins Women.
Beth was chosen as captain of the County representative team in the 2018-19 Gill Burns Championship campaign having already led Durham Uni Women’s 1st XV to face Exeter in the finals of the BUCS national cup competition. Her joie de vivre, commitment and drive during training and playing as well as her demonstrable leadership skills made her a natural choice as captain.She will definitely be a loss to female rugby in the northeast but what a fantastic opportunity to be joining Quins following their victory over Saracens to claim the Allianz Premier 15s title.
All Durham County RFU clubs wish her well and look forward to seeing her playing with her new team! Good luck, Beth!
