Amelie  (5W) has been talent spotted by Essex Junior Squash and awarded a training bursary for 2017.
Amelie is pictured above with Lauren Selby (- Director of Coaching at Off the Wall Squash Colchester, Level 3 UKCC coach, Head Norwegian National Coach for Juniors & Seniors, Essex Coach, BSc Sports Science from Loughborough & former professional player), shortly after hearing about her selection. Amelie will receive a series of private sessions to develop her further whilst being monitored by the team.

Mersea School has now had three children selected for this program/bursary scheme (all girls). Olivia and Lara  were both enrolled in this scheme. Olivia placed well in the British Finals at the end of 2016 and Lara has had great success in Under 11's national finals. Both Olivia and Lara will be competing in Warwick and Nottingham respectively next weekend in the Under 15 and Under 13 Inter County Trophy Finals. The bursary scheme kick started their progress and so will be looking to see Amelie competing in the Under 11 National Finals later this year. Watch this space...

Well done Amelie :-)
