The Widnes Wild Women’s team continue to build their roster for the forthcoming 2019/2020 WNIHL season, with the return of Victoria Venables and new signings Sarah Louise Aspinall and Charlotte Jackson.

Victoria Venables was Alternate Captain for the Wild Women last season, playing 7 games and notching up 1 assist. She played the 2001/2002 Season for the Altrincham Avalanche Team, then spent the next 8 seasons with the Flintshire Furies. In all, she has played 115 games and has picked up 5 goals and 10 assists from her primarily defensive position.

Sarah Louise Aspinall is a new signing for the 2019/2020 season. Sarah originally learnt her hockey in Altrincham and played for the Manchester Phoenix Women’s team in the 2013/2014 season, making 4 appearances and contributing 1 assist. She has more recently played rec. hockey with the Widnes-based Earle Road Elks team.

While being a new player for the Wild Women’s team, Charlotte Jackson is already a very familiar face around the Widnes rink, as she is the younger sister of long-serving Wild NIHL player Tom Jackson. She has played Roller Hockey since the age of 8 – the last six years as a net minder – and has recently also taken up Ball Hockey and was selected for the GB Team at the World Championships in the Czech Republic. This coming season will be Charlotte’s first ever playing on ice.


Victoria Venables is sponsored by CUL-FIT Personal Training for the 2019/2020 season.

Sarah Aspinall is sponsored by Varlden Clothing for the 2019/2020 season.

Other players are available to sponsor at £50 each and there are various other sponsorship packages to suit all pockets and budgets.

Depending on the level of sponsorship taken up, sponsors will receive company advertising opportunities at home games and on team social media, public address announcements during home games and photo opportunities before and after the game.
