Football Scholar, Lilli-Victoria Maple, continues to impress on the national team stage with yet another call-up to the England u20 squad. Lilli will be hoping for more good performances to establish herself as a star player in the squad.
Onto the Judo world, where Scholars Julia Scardone and Emmanuel Nartey have been putting in strong performances across the board. Julia has been selected to represent GB in the upcoming Commonwealth Champs in South Africa and the EUSA Champs later in the year. On the other hand, Emmanuel, was also selected for the Commonwealth Judo Champs where he will be representing Ghana.
Over in the pool, Swimming Scholar, Michael Gunning, finished in 5th place at the British Champs last week which has resulted in selection for the upcoming EUSA Champs.
Last but not least, our Tennis programme continues to dominate with the Men’s 1st team clinching promotion to the BUCS Premier South having previously won the BUCS National Trophy.
Well done all #TeamUEL Athletes involved!
