Hornets rugby player Katie Reynolds made her debut for South Gloucestershire and Stroud College.

Somerset county rugby and Hornets player Katie Reynolds made her debut for South Gloucestershire and Stroud College (SGS) in the rugby match against Exeter College.

The 16-year-old former Worle School pupil is now studying for a Level 3 extended certificate/diploma sport at SGS in Filton. The college is a feeder for the academy to Bristol Bears Ladies Rugby.

A strong SGS side were always in control of the match putting Exeter under a great deal of pressure. Katie playing at No 8 put in a good performance for her first match of the season.

Some handling errors by SGS allowed Exeter to score two tries against the run of play to make the final score 53-12 in favour of the Filton side.

Katie is a member of the Under-18 Centre of Excellence (CoE) programme with the English RFU. The CoE’s are designed to develop players on an individual basis in a training environment.

She must use this training environment to continue to work hard and develop herself as a player and individual.
