Caitlin Silk selected for GB U17 girls

Huge congratulations to Worthing squad member Caitlin Silk who has been selected for the Great Britain girls under 17 squad which will play in the European championships that will be played in Sibenik in Croatia from August 21st -29th.

GB have been drawn in Group A of the competition and will face tough matches against Spain, who were winners of the last competition played in late 2019, along with Serbia, Israel and the Czech Republic.  

Caitlin has worked incredibly hard to gain selection and the squad has been training virtually every weekend, often in Manchester, since the last lock down ended and the indoor swimming pools were allowed to re-open. The squad is now preparing for the trip to Croatia and this continues later this week with a training camp at Millfield School in Somerset.

We are all delighted that Caitlin has been selected but commiserations must go to fellow Worthing member and goal keeper Maddie Calthrop who was really unlucky to miss out on selection when the final squad for the championships was announced.
