Ellie selected for another England Women’s U16 Training Camp
Talented Year 11 Ivybridge Community College student and footballer, Ellie Sara, is making an impact on the national scene after being selected for another England Women’s U16 Training Camp at Bisham Abbey National Sports Centre.
The three day event was a preparation camp for the forthcoming UEFA development tournament in Portugal, which a number of players from the camp eventually attended. During the camp, Ellie took part in two pitch-based training sessions, strength and conditioning activities and player education sessions.
Ellie said, “Although I didn’t play in the UEFA tournament in Portugal, the camp allowed me to train with the squad until they went abroad. This was a great opportunity for me to show my quality and experience in a high-level training environment. I hope to get many more opportunities to do this in the future.”
Ellie has now attended eight England squad training camps and she found all of the experiences beneficial.
“I am starting to feel more comfortable with the environment at this standard and feel I did really well in training,” added Ellie, “I am looking forward to the next opportunity as I feel I am improving all the time and building confidence.”
