Following a successful round of trials and two months playing netball in Australia in 2019, Ellie Gibbons, a member of the sports coaching team at New Hall School, Chelmsford, has been signed for Severn Stars Netball.
Ellie will now play matches across the country as part of the team in the netball Super League.
This brings the total number of netball Super League players working as part of New Hall coaching team to three; including Michelle Drayne, who plays for London Pulse and represented Northern Ireland at the 2019 World Cup and Sophie Hankin who plays for Surrey Storm.
This is an incredible opportunity for the girls at New Hall to learn from some fantastic role models.
This is already evident with five of the School’s students involved in sports pathways including the Essex County Academy, the Basildon Saracens Mavericks Hub and the Hertfordshire County Academy.
