England Call up for Myerscough Newbies

Highly talented duo Milly Knowles and Shauna Harrison have recently been named to their respective England squads to travel out to the European Championships this summer.

The pair, who will join Myerscough College Basketball Academy in September, powered through a vigorous selection process to make the final selection.

“I’m honoured and proud to have represented my Country in tournaments over the last three Summers! It’s a massive reward for all the hard on the court and in the gym. I couldn’t have done it without the help of my coaches and the support of my parents”.

Said Milly Knowles, who will travel out Sarajevo on the 20th of July with the under – 18’s squad.

“I feel proud and excited to represent my Country and such a big tournament” Said Harrison.
