This is Emma Jackson, one of Selby RUFC's u8 players. She plays with great enthusiasm every week and enjoys her rugby at Sandhill Lane.
On Sunday she went to watch the England ladies v France at Doncaster and was lucky enough to meet Vickii Cornborough (pictured) after the match, along with other England players.
One of Selby's u18 players, Jemma Fieldsend, also made an appearance at Doncaster this weekend and formed part of the guard of honour at the beginning of the match. Both Jemma and Ellie Green, another u18s player, are currently in trials to join the Yorkshire u18 squad for 2019.
Selby very much encourages and welcomes girls at all ages to come and try rugby. Girls play mixed rugby until they head to high school and then join the u13s girls teams, followed by the u15s and u18s. Selby are looking to form a Women's team during next season participating in matches in the 2020/21 season.
