Two young basketball talents have been selected to be part of Norfolk’s under 17s development squad.

Megan Kolici and Sarah Pollard, who play for the region’s only women’s basketball team the East Cambs Amazons, impressed coaches at trials in Dereham last month.

Both Megan and Sarah, who go to Witchford Village College and Soham Village College respectively, are the Warriors’ youngest players, and Megan only took the sport up recently.

The Warriors’ coach, Rob Knapper, said: “Sarah is a talented player and always giver her coaches 100 per cent and Megan has been our diamond in the rough.

“She at first found training difficult but she stuck with it and in the short time she has been with us, we have seen her skill level increase.

“We are over the moon that both have been selected onto the programme and their basketball knowledge and skill level will only increase as they attend the training sessions.”
