Scotland Duo Lana Skeldon and Evie Gallagher Sign with Bristol Bears Following Worcester’s Collapse
Rugby Signings Bring Hope Amidst Collapsed Premiership Women’s Team
In a surprising turn of events, Scotland’s talented duo, hooker Lana Skeldon (30) and back-row forward Evie Gallagher (23), have officially joined Bristol Bears following the unfortunate collapse of Premiership Women’s Rugby side Worcester.
Lana Skeldon boasts an impressive rugby career with her country, having been capped an incredible 66 times since her debut in 2011. She made the move to Warriors in the year prior to joining forces with the Bears.
Evie Gallagher has also made waves internationally, earning herself three tries across her appearances in Scotland’s national team for a total of 22 matches played. Her youthfulness brings both talent and potential to this new venture.
The demise of Worcester last month due to financial struggles left many players uncertain about their future. Fortunately, the arrival of these two accomplished athletes injects hope into the sport as they embark on their journey with Bristol Bears.

“We’re delighted to be able to bolster our squad with two players of Lana and Evie’s quality,” says Ward. “Both have proven themselves domestically and internationally, which will undoubtedly increase competition within our team as we aim for success in both the league and cup.”
