Sarah Joins Cheshire U19 Netball Squad

Senior Netball Captain Sarah Richards, who is in Year 13, has been selected for the Cheshire U19 Squad.

She played for Cheshire last year, when the team was split into an elite team and a second team. However, at the start of this season it was decided to scrap the second team, and as Sarah was part of the second team, she had to attend trials on two consecutive weekends to compete for a place on the squad. She learned at the end of the trials yesterday that she had been selected for the team!

“I was quite nervous – I didn’t think I’d get in, because I’d been on the lower squad before!” Sarah said. She is delighted to have made it onto the equivalent of the elite squad this year.
