‘At just 17 years old, Lucy was deemed physically and mentally prepared for adult rugby,’ he said. ‘After two games for Sussex County’s under-18 team, she was picked up by the England Rugby Union Centre of Excellence, where she went on to train and play for their under-18 side.’
Lucy is equally active on the rugby sidelines, devoting her time to giving back to the academy by coaching and refereeing.
‘She is always there on a Sunday morning to coach, unless she has a ladies’ game. She gives up a significant amount of her time to support the academy alongside her studies and her Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.’
Lucy made her first appearance in a senior Siam match in May, when the Guernsey women came away with a 40-0 win.
