I currently play for Newcastle Staffs womens volleyball club, this season we have done really well winning the league and only losing 1 match out of 18 which is a really good record for such as young squad (average age 18). We also reached the national shield final which was played at Kettering (the national volleyball centre) in front of a big crowd. We won this 3-0 and I got MVP (most valuable player) with a kill rate of 49% and only making 1 error. The next day I was in another final with my Newcastle Staffs U18 squad playing against Redhill, with the confidence from the day before we won again 3-0 but this was a well fought match. I also got MVP which I thought was going to one of my other teammates Paige. That is a total of trophies this season :) very happy with that.
As I have been at the National Volleyball Academy this year I got invited to join the GB squad for trails to make the squad of 16 for summer team.
This included training for 2weeks, twice a day. Very hard work and very tiring but I loved every single minute of it, all the ladies are very nice, welcoming and helped me a lot. At the end of the two weeks the squad was annonced and the 16th name was mine, I couldnt believe it as I was the youngest player there. I was so excited and just wanted to shout out “I AM IN THE GB SQUAD” :D this now means that I have a full summer schedule ahead where I could get picked to play some of the best teams ranked 50+ in the world. I will keep you up to date on how it all goes.
