Rangers will again field a second team, which
includes the Ricarda Nelson Group (North Two).

Crawford Stadium s training pitch, where most of
the clubs players and staff were able to meet and
challenge against their rivals in a day of fun and
camaraderie. Last season s league and knockout win-
ners received their prizes from the T&T Football
Association of which the Wolf is a subordinate of.
This year the Wolf has decided to pay tribute to
three pioneers, who according to the league s media
representative Jinelle James "have impacted women s
football far beyond the local scene", by naming the
three groups after them.
