A lot of hard work and effort has paid off for one of Arthur Terry's GCSE PE students! Elley Criddle (Year 10) has been selected to represent the West Midlands Under 17's Netball team!
The process was by no means an easy one though.... Elley was initially spotted representing her County team and invited to attend a trial session with the West Midlands squad. After a successful initial trial she was then invited back to perform once again, competing against and alongside some of the West Midlands' finest Netball talents.
After what was a nervous wait for both Elley and her family, she would soon learn that further trials would follow during the month of July. During these trials she sustained an ankle injury but was able to continue in spite of this. All the hard work prior to this had paid off when Elley found out she had been successful!
Elley will now join the academy team training on a weekly basis, continuing to develop her skill set amongst some fantastic Netball players. The opportunity is part of the England Netball National Pathway and could potentially lead to an opportunity to play at National level. We wish Elley every success as part of the West Midlands squad.
Well done Elley!!
