LISTEN: Glossop Amazones are tackling the stigma of female rugby

Rugby union is often regarded as a high testosterone sport with rough tackles in a male-dominated environment.

However, Glossop Rugby Club's ladies' team - the Glossop Amazones - are smashing that stereotype to bits.

Reformed in 2017, the ladies' section now boasts senior, under 17 and under 15 teams that take to the pitch at Hargate Hill on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.

Amelia Cowburn, who looks after the club's social media accounts, joined the club during lockdown and has since developed a love for the game. 

We spoke to her about the latest developments with the ladies section amongst other things.
