Unlucky not to win anything all season

News: Captain Karen Duke announced her early retirement from B&W LFC and the beautiful game. This came as a shock to some, an excellent player and role model, she will be sorely missed. We wish her well in all her future endeavours. Many a forward has been on the receiving end of a firm and goal saving tackle from Karen. It has only been her speed and determination that has stopped us conceding more goals. She is famous for her ability to shout at her players, and the screams of "go on, have a shot" will stay with us all for some time. 

Jackie's well publicised retirement culminated in a choking, heart-rendering, slurry? acceptance speech at the Awards Ceremony where she scooped up 4 awards. The old woman started in defence at B&W LFC in 1997, moved into midfield for a couple of seasons and then upfront in her last. Her very successful striker's stint ended on an all time high, breaking club records (and hearts ;) along the way. Player of the last and 2 other matches, scorer of 24 seasonal goals and getting drunk before anyone else is truly a hard act to follow. So we really must wish Tash well in stepping into the famous size 6 shoes -don't worry, we're all behind you. Jackie McDonald has been a fine ambassador of football for this and her other clubs, possessing tremendous skill and a great personality on and off the pitch, she will be greatly missed as a player by all at Bristol & West LFC.

News just in: It appears that Jackie will return to occasionally run the line, so those thinking that they had heard the last of her thunderous commands followed by the mellow sound of creaking knees should not relax on their laurels just yet.
