Un­der 15s coach - Alana Coates El­iza Brad­ford (C/WA): A lit­tle pocket rocket. One of our youngest girls who came up from the un­der 13s this year to play.

So­phie Wil­lis-Dudley (GD/WD/GK): Vice­cap­tain. First year at Blighty. A great de­fender all the way down the court. Shuts down her player com­pletely in the ring and gets a lot of in­ter­cepts. Al­ways an op­tion bring­ing the ball down into at­tack. Made her A grade de­but this sea­son.

Zara Mac­don­ald (GS): A very ac­cu­rate shot for goal from any­where in the goal ring. Holds her po­si­tion well and al­ways gets her re­bounds. Al­ways puts pres­sure on the pass when there’s a turnover.

Sarah Ham­ner (GD/GK): An amaz­ing de­fender. Reads the play so well and is al­ways able to get in for an in­ter­cept to turn the ball over. One of our youngest play­ers has come up from the un­der 13s to play. Has a pos­i­tive at­ti­tude and is al­ways en­cour­ag­ing ev­ery­one.

Karla Ni­cholls (C/WA):

Cap­tain. Al­ways tries her heart out and never stops. Puts de­fen­sive pres­sure on every sin­gle pass com­ing down the court. En­cour­ages ev­ery­one and al­ways has great ad­vice for her team­mates.

Shelby-Lee His­lop (GK/GS): Sticks to her op­po­nent like glue the whole game com­pletely shut­ting them down in the ring. If her player leaves the goal ring she won’t let them back in. You can hear her voice to whole way down the court. Can also switch to the other end of the court to shoot when needed.

Bri­die Blake (C/WD/GA): An­other first year player out at Blighty and a great as­set to our team. A util­ity player who can play in any po­si­tion on the court.
