30th November 2020 — Wisbech Grammar School are immensely proud of 5th Form pupil Alana Pritchard (Wisbech), who has been selected for Saracens Mavericks Futures Academy after a screening process that took place over October half term. The Futures Academy is another step forward on the England Netball player pathway.
Alana started playing netball in Prep 3 at Wisbech Grammar School and has been a member of all the year group A teams, making her Senior 1st VII debut in the 3rd Form. She has been a member of Rookies Netball Club from the age of 12.
Alana was selected for Cambridgeshire County Academy in 2017 and made the switch to the Norfolk County Academy last season. Alana represented Norfolk in a county triangular tournament with Suffolk and Essex where she received the ‘Norfolk player of the match’ award.
Selection into the Futures academy is a huge step forward for Alana and we wish her the best of luck with her future training.
