Two Students Make Great Britain Colleges Netball Squad

Netball Academy

Two members of Itchen’s Netball Academy have been called up to the Great Britain Colleges squad.

Both Megan Wallace and Chloe Blatch received the call-up after impressing on trial in Nottingham in December.

The two second year students have seen their hard work with the Netball Academy pay off and are now receiving international recognition.

The pair will be part of the Association of Colleges (AoC) netball squad which will play matches across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales this year.

They have already taken part in their first weekend session with the AoC side, as they played in fixtures held at the Gateshead Academy for Sport on January 13-14.

The call-up to represent the British Colleges side sees the duo follow in the footsteps of former students Hannah Croad and Yasmin Parsons who also made the squad during their time at Itchen.

Their next set of fixtures comes at the end of February and will see them head to Belfast.

We wish both Megan and Chloe good luck with their future fixtures.
