Shekells selected for Birmingham 2022 Games

Jade Shekells has been selected for Team England Sevens to compete at the 2022 Birmingham Commonwealth Games.

The Warriors centre, who has risen through the ranks at Sixways, will be looking to help England achieve further success following their recent Europe Trophy Series wins in Budapest and Zagreb.

Co-captain Abbie Brown said: “With it being a home tournament, you can sense the excitement and the build-up increasing.

“So many friends and family members are coming to watch which is brilliant for Team England.

“There’s a real buzz around it for us as a squad with the aim of going out and achieving gold. We’re all working hard in camps to prepare for our World Cup qualifier and then Birmingham 2022. We’re all hugely honoured to go out there and represent Team England.”
