Following the recent announcement regarding the formation of a Halifax RLFC Women's team, we are pleased to welcome Martina Greenwood as the new Head Coach of the side. With a wealth of experience having previously played for Warrington, Bradford and England A, held a Coaching and Management role with England U21's, as well as working with various Community Clubs and the Yorkshire Girls development section, Martina is highly respected within the Women's game. Special mention must go to Lewis Spence and EnergyCheck, who we can formally announce as the Official Sponsors of the Halifax RLFC Women's Team and Martina as Head Coach.
Operations Director Dave Grayson said of Martina's Appointment:
"The standard of candidates interviewed for the Women's Head Coach role was extremely high. However, we felt that the vast experience that Martina brought to the table and the high standards she has attained would be a perfect fit for Halifax WRLFC and the players. On behalf of Halifax RLFC, I would like to wish Martina every success in her Head Coach role and she has the 100% backing of the BoD and everybody associated with the Club. Also a massive thank you and welcome to EnergyCheck our new Sponsors of the Team and Martina."
Sarah Kennedy added to Dave Grayson's comments saying;
"I'm really pleased to have someone with such experience and willingess to coach this team and I think Martina can really help kick start the women and help us meet the targets."
And finally Martina expressed her gratitude;
"It's a real honour to be successful and chosen to be the Head Coach of the Halifax RLFC Women's team and also to be accepted into the Halifax rugby league family. There is a great team of women here that all want to learn and achieve and I want to help them to achieve their targets whilst representing Halifax."
Welcome to Halifax RLFC Martina and good luck in heading up one of the five successful teams that play under the Halifax RLFC banner.
