Phoebe Parker (Sixth Form) National Netball Achievement
During the summer break, Phoebe Parker represented the Mavericks Youth netball team in the National Performance League tournament at Loughborough. The Mavericks Youth team played superbly and were unbeaten at the group stages. The team went into the finals against the favourites Manchester Thunder, tournament winners for the last six years. After a tense and demanding final, the Mavericks Youth team won the tournament and became the top U19 team in the country. Phoebe was one of the youngest members of the Mavericks U19 squad playing along-side several England U19 and U21 players.
For the upcoming 2016/2017 season Phoebe will continue as part of Norfolk United Netball Club, the East Regional Performance Academy and National Academy Potential Group. Phoebe will retrial for Hertfordshire Mavericks Youth in early October to hopefully regain selection for another year, but in the meantime is delighted to have been selected as part of the Mavericks U21 squad for their tournament in early September.
