Blessed Trinity netball star Holly has got a county call-up.

Holly, 15, represented Lancashire at Under 14 level last year and has just been selected for the Under 15s.

"It was a tough process this year as it was a big step up from last year," said Holly. "It was much quicker and obviously everyone had grown so it was more competitive."

More than 100 girls started the trials at Blackburn College for the first day, they were reduced to 50 and then the numbers were reduced again with Holly making the final cut.

"I was really happy as I knew how tough it was."

Goalkeeper/Goal Defence Holly also had trials for the Leeds Rhinos - a Super League side - who have training hubs in the North West.

"I got selected for their training hub in East Lancashire," added Holly.

"The next step is to secure a place in the academy at Leeds Rhinos and then hopefully move all the way up to the first team and maybe England."
