LauraSummers2It is with heavy hearts that we acknowledge the passing of Senior Women’s player Laura Summers. Our deepest sympathy to Laura’s family, friends and anyone who had the privilege of knowing her. Laura will be remembered as a dynamic midfielder who’s attack on the ball inspired her team mates. Laura played an integral role in our leadership group and contributed greatly to our successful season. We thank the SBMT community along with the wider football community for their love and support throughout this time.

Rest easy Laura.
Gone but not forgotten.
Forever in our hearts.
