Former MK Dons SET Netball’s Megan Thorne helped England to be crowned champions of U21 Netball Europe last weekend at the University of Worcester Arena.

England took home the trophy thanks to victories over Northern Ireland (83-20), Wales (58-26) and Scotland (74-21).

Megan, aged just 16, featured off the bench in all three matches for the young England side, who are looking good ahead of the Netball World Youth Cup in 2021.

Now a member of the Wasps Super League Under-19s squad, Megan was a MK Dons Under-16s player last season.

Speaking to mkdons.com, her former coach with MK Dons, Julie Tucker, said: “I knew Megs had what it takes to get there when first working with her at 13 because of her sheer spirit and determination.

“Netball is clearly in the genes at the Thorne household, with Dad, Mum and baby sister Tayla all playing at a high level. Megan’s grandmother Audrey Castle is a nationally and internationally respected umpire and assessor who still gives her time in Milton Keynes to help develop netball too.

“As the European city of sport for 2020, Milton Keynes is producing some amazing talent across a variety of sports and Megan is raising the bar even higher for Netball in MK.”
