England call on Wycombe's Clan
FOUR High Wycombe girls have just returned from South Africa where they made their international indoor netball debuts for England in a Tri-Nations tournament.
Sisters Anna and Helen Carter-Roberts were joined in the U18s team by Beaconsfield High schoolmate Kate Bannister and Francesca Roberts of Chalfont Community College student Francesca Wells after being scouted by the national selectors while playing for Wycombe club Clan.
They spent two weeks in Johannesburg, playing a six-a-side and seven-a-side tournament against South Africa, Australia and a South African invitational team.
England, who have only been playing indoor netball since February, didn’t make any of the finals but there was some individual success with Wells being named U18 sevens Player of the Tournament.
Co-captain Helen Carter-Roberts, who was the youngest player in the tournament at 15, said: “Our girls played amazingly well against very experienced opposition.”
Bannister added: “It was a huge experience for all of us, and we were very proud to receive our first England caps.”
