And the new franchise now has 30 players regularly attending practice, 50 names with a registered interest and 14 players interested in the Women’s team. It is also beginning to develop its youth programme.

The club is currently looking for sponsors, from main team sponsor to jersey sponsor. All sponsorship packages come with benefits. It is deep in talks with a potential home venue.
