LUCY has always been interested in sports, particularly netball. She joined Oaksway Netball Club aged just four. An enjoyment for running led to her representing Fens Primary in cross country as well as netball.

After moving to secondary school, Lucy has continued her development and as well as captaining her previous school team – which never lost a match and were town champions – she also finished third in the town cross country championship. Then in the Under-16s nationals she she finished 12th despite racing with the year above.

It is netball which is her main love, though, and her performances for Oaksway as a centre and on the wing caught the eye of regional selectors. She is a key part of the North-East Regional Academy.

Lucy has already represented Oaksway in the Eston Ladies League and she helped her club to win national qualifiers and earned player of the tournament in one outing during 2014.
