Nominations are well under way for the Foxy Bingo Ladies of the League community programme.
If you haven’t already, don’t hesitate to tell Foxy about your special lady before the end of August, when 5 nominees will be shortlisted to attend the end of season Man of Steel awards. The winning lady will receive £1000 in holiday vouchers as well as a £1000 donation to a club community project of her choice!
Foxy are looking to hear about ladies who always go the extra mile for their club or community. Fans, players and coaches have been busy nominating their special ladies, uncovering lots of worthy contenders for the Ladies of the League title. Check out a couple of examples below from all levels of the game!
Danny Kirmond, Wakefield Wildcats Captain, nominated his fiancé Nina for Ladies of the League. Danny was quick to compliment Nina on her cooking skills, which he enjoys and appreciates after a hard days training!

Catherine Bullock (aka Mrs B) has worked at Wakefield Wildcats for 46 years! At the age of 84, she still goes to work at the club 3 times a week and is truly an unstoppable force. She has helped maintain the smooth running of the club for many years, regularly going above and beyond her duties to ensure everything is in order. When she’s not working she’s supporting the team, never missing a game or event. Mrs B is part of the furniture at the club and deserves to be recognised for her continued commitment to Rugby League!
Kathrine Casey is always first in line to get involved in a range of projects at Swillington ARLFC, including organising the summer gala, committee meetings and ensuring the club is inclusive for all ages. Kathrine has recently been in hospital for a very serious operation but her commitment and passion for league has not faltered. Even whilst bed bound and seriously poorly she is still passionate about helping at the club to make sure things are running smoothly! Swillington would certainly be a poorer place without Kathrine and therefore, she deserves to be recognised and celebrated for everything she does for the club!
The soon to be announced panel of judges will begin shortlisting in September, after which voting will commence for the 5 contenders. Go to www.ladiesoftheleague.co.uk to nominate your Ladies of the league today!
