Netballers chosen by Cheshire and Manchester

U19 Cheshire netballers Olivia Ronnie and Alice Payne

School netballers Olivia Ronnie, Alice Payne and Megan Taylor have all been rewarded for their fine form on the courts by being chosen to play for their regional squads.

Cheshire U19s

16-year-olds Olivia Ronnie and Alice Payne (pictured above) have both been selected for Cheshire U19s after a string of impressive performances for both the school and their clubs. The girls both play for the Stockport Grammar first team and, outside of school, are members of Cheshire League side Didsbury and Northern League club Tameside respectively.

The two lower sixth form pupils have recent experience of impressing the county selectors having both represented Cheshire U16s last year.

Greater Manchester U14s

Meanwhile, second year pupil Megan Taylor has been picked to join the Greater Manchester U14s academy squad and has also successfully completed trials to play for the Manchester Thunder U14s academy.

Speaking about our netballers’ achievements, head of girls’ PE and games Miss Laura Topping said:

Congratulations to all the girls who’ve been picked to play for the squads.

They thoroughly deserve their places after all the hard work they’ve put into their netball in and out of school, and we’re really looking forward to seeing how they get on!
