Davies named Valkyries Player of the Month

Worcester Valkyries forward Lark Davies has picked up November’s Worcestershire County Council Player of the Month award. 

Valkyries had a mixed November, with a Senior Cup win over Firwood Waterloo before falling to Saracens Women in the same competition. 

But they did enjoy a resounding 50-29 win over reigning champions Richmond Women in the Women’s Premiership at the end of the month. 

And Davies, who enjoyed a fine month, was presented with the Player of the Month award by Cllr Richard Udall prior to the match with Saracens last Sunday.

Valkyries Forwards Coach Dave Whiting said: “Lark has been returning from an injury picked up in the summer. 

“November's been the month we have seen Lark continue her form from last season with consistency in the set-piece, some outstanding carries and becoming a leader on the pitch during the cup campaign. 

“Not only has she performed outstandingly but she has again found her confidence following the injury.”

Davies added: “It’s an honour to receive the award. The squad had a really positive November and I'm really pleased with my individual performances too. 

“With the cup run on hold and a return to Premiership action, we hope to carry the momentum forward to fight for the play-off spot we deserve.”
