Earlier this month, at the Manchester Thunder v Team Northumbria Netball Superleague game, Burnley’s Emilia Roscoe was selected to play in a curtain-raiser prior to the main match.

It is an annual event where some of the girls who have trained with the Thunder Academy - the Thunder Babes - get the opportunity to show off their talents.

These training sessions are coached by some of the stars in the world of netball, Tracey Neville - sister of Gary and Phil - and Rachel Henry.
