A MORETON Hall Sixth Former has added another achievement to her list of sporting accolades after being selected for Warwickshire County Cricket Club’s Academy under-19s programme.

Milly Home has been selected after a successful 2018, during which she represented England U19s at the U20 European Lacrosse Championships in Poland and also made her debut for Warwickshire Women’s first XI cricket team.

After making her debut, Milly was awarded the prestigious ‘U17 Bear’ prize and was named ‘Overall Player for Women’s and Girls’ for Warwickshire County Cricket Club – selection to the Warwickshire Academy followed.

Milly was also selected for ‘the School Games’ hosted by Loughborough University where the best 39, U18s in England compete against each other.

For Milly, the highlight of the year has been playing for Warwickshire woman.

She said: “Playing cricket in Senior Division 1 has been an incredible, exciting and unforgettable experience.”

Milly fits her sporting achievements in around an intensive academic programme as she prepares to sit her A Levels in Maths, Economics and Geography next June before embarking on a Finance and Management degree.

For Milly, her sporting commitments enhance her academic work – she said: “Cricket is one of the toughest sports mentally.

“It requires discipline, concentration and determination and all of these amazing opportunities, as well as captaining Warwickshire U17’s girls 2018 season and my first school Lacrosse team has taught me time management, teamwork, people skills and how to balance my academic and sporting commitments.”

Moreton Hall Principal, Jonathan Forster, says “Milly is an exceptional Moreton Hall student and we are very proud of playing a part in her exciting journey”.
