Millfield netballers have been selected into the Team Bath National Performance League (NPL) squads for the 2021-22 season.
Upper Sixth pair Bella Valeur Adu and Amirah Weightman Dauda have been selected for the Team Bath U19 NPL side and Lower Sixth Izzy Mackenzie has been selected for the U17 NPL squad. Lower Sixth Poppy Sawyer has also been selected into the U18 Team Bath squad.

The netballers were selected after a series of vigorous trials and will train and play weekly with their respective teams. The NPL season is now underway and commences at the end of April.

Upper Sixth Scholar Bella joined Millfield in Sixth Form and has been a pivotal part of Millfield netball’s first team and Team Bath’s development pathway. Bella is Millfield’s first team Captain along with Izzy Mackenzie who is vice Captain.

Bella says, “Millfield has played a crucial role in my selection into Team Bath; with high quality coaching and facilities on site I am able to train every day to push myself onto performance programmes. It is an honour to play in blue and gold and I would love to continue playing in the NPL and superleague set up in the future.”

Millfield hosts one of the Team Bath Academy Development Centres (ADC) which saw a record number of seventeen Millfield students selected into the Team Bath ADC performance pathway last summer.

Director of Netball, Jenna Adamson, said, “I am incredibly proud of what these young ladies continue to achieve both in school and at Team Bath. They are fantastic role models to all and their hard work and dedication shows that you can work your way up within the performance pathway or enter at any point. I am looking forward to seeing them in action this season.”
