U19 Women
St Cats School

Tilly Shires

Tilly (17) is one of the younger members of the team. She is currently at St Catherine’s school where she has been part of the successful team that won National Schools as well as their county tournament. She captained the U15 county team and has been chosen to captain the school team next year in her final year. The first year Tilly trialled for the U19 squad she was unsuccessful but she continued to train hard at school and trialled again the following year, this time successfully being selected for the squad. Along the way she has achieved two Home Ints caps and toured with England once to the USA. Tilly is the team firecracker – dangerous in attack and tenacious in defence, Tilly will be covering the ground fast. Expect the back of the net to take a battering as she fires the balls in with pace, and you don’t want to be the attack if she is on you in a double team – you won’t have the ball for long.
