FHS Trains With England Team

Liverpool Football Club, through the Premier League 4 Sport project, sees top-flight clubs encourage people to participate in other sports. One of those sports is netball with the LFC Foundation's PL4S project working to organise sessions for girls aged 11-16 across the city. Because of the amazing success our netball team achieved last year, our Year 8 & 9 girls were invited to train and play with the England netball team. This was an honour for the girls; they were so excited at the prospect of not only meeting England internationals but actually playing with them. Liverpool Football club even sent along one of their players, Martin Kelly, to train with them. Our two netball teams and other pupils studying sport are now looking forward to going to watch the England team play at the Echo Arena against the following countries: Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and South Africa.
