Despite having only played the indoor version of the game a handful of times the 26-year-old has gained a place in the side that will travel to South Africa in March for a World Cup competition.
The former Les Quennevais and Hautlieu student, who went to Bath on a sports scholarship at the age of 16 because of her netballing potential, has recently graduated from Bristol University with a BSc in Deaf Studies and now works as a sign language interpreter for Gloucestershire and Bristol Colleges. She was thrilled to learn the news having completed the final England trial in London on Sunday.
She said: ‘It’s been an absolute whirlwind. I’ve only played the indoor game about five times and I’ve made the squad after three trial sessions. I’m completely dumbfounded but I feel very honoured to be chosen to represent England.’
