In October 2020 both Poppy Pearson (year 9) & Jess East (year 10) attended a grueling screening process for Loughborough Lightning which included fitness testing, skill application and match play. Loughborough Lightning is one of only 11 netball Super League franchises in the UK and after an anxious wait they were both selected for Loughborough Lightning U15s.
The 2020/21 season has been extremely difficult due to the pandemic and most of the training sessions had to be attended & carried out through Zoom. However, both girls enjoyed the experience and decided to attend the recent screening process again at Loughborough University ready for the forthcoming season.
Fantastic news as both Poppy & Jess were successful; Poppy once again in the U15s and Jess this time has moved up into the U17s.
Annabell Sanderson competed in the pony premiere show at Aintree. She finished 4th out of 54 starters in the Hickstead JC qualifier just missing out on a qualifying place. This was a fantastic achievement as it was her first time competing at that level.
