Two players from Tameside Netball Club have helped the England Under 17 squad to an impressive victory.

Millie Sanders and Ella Standring, who represent Manchester Thunder at Under 21 level, played an important role in the Roses’ 70-35 victory over Wales in Sheffield on Sunday.

The fixture provided Millie with her first England cap, along with Oldham Netball Club’s Berri Neil.

Following the game, Jan Crabtree, England Academy Head Coach, said: “It was good to see all six new caps take the court. Our performance improved as the players settled.”
