Amy nets call-up for Eng­land

Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

ATEENAGER has been se­lected for Eng­land Net­ball squad.

Amy Carter, 18, will be part of the ‘fu­tures’ squad which de­vel­ops younger play­ers for the full na­tional team.

Amy, a for­mer Fallibroome stu­dent, has spent the last year play­ing at U19 and U21 level for her coun­try with tours to Ja­maica, South Africa and New Zealand.

She is now hop­ing to break into the se­nior squad while study­ing medicine at the Univer­sity of Manch­ester.

Han­nah Mose­ley, her for­mer PE teacher, said: “As a de­part­ment we are ex­tremely proud that we have had the op­por­tu­nity to wit­ness the growth of Amy as a net­ball player. It is a phe­nom­e­nal achieve­ment to be se­lected to rep­re­sent the coun­try. She has in­spired many of the net­ball play­ers here at Fallibroome and the staff and pupils wish her ev­ery suc­cess in the fu­ture.”

Amy, who plays cen­tre, said: “It was hard study­ing for my A-levels ex­ams and then go­ing off to train­ing. I had trips to South Africa and New Zealand dur­ing my re­vi­sion, so it was pretty in­tense.

“But I am happy to be part of the squad and now hope to make it into the se­niors.”
