In December 2021, Denstone pupil, Daisy Aspinall was selected for the North vs South England U18 rugby trials. All the hard work Daisy put in paid off and it has earnt her a place in the England U18 squad for the 2022 campaign. This is an incredible achievement at just 16 years of age.

Daisy will prepare for the forthcoming matches, which will take place in February and April, by attending training camps this month and in March.

On naming the squad, Head Coach James Cooper said “It was extremely tough to narrow down and select the group after the quality of potential and performances shown by players both in camps and the game in December with some good players narrowly missing out. This is testament to the great work being done at clubs and colleges, constituent bodies and centre of excellences’’.

Here at Denstone, girl’s rugby is becoming hugely popular. Pupils benefit from our elite facilities, as well as having four Level 3 staff to hand.

Daisy joins Old Denstonian, Lecky Dunne in achieving sporting success in women’s rugby!

We wish Daisy and the team all the best with their upcoming matches.
