Rachel for England!September 8, 2016
Last Sunday 12 year old Rachel Seal was invited to Sandburn Hall GC for a Regional U16 England trial along with several other girls. The day started at 8.30am and finished around 6pm, and consisted of skills tests and playing on the course, all observed by Andrew Nicholson (David Leadbetter's European Head Coach) and Steve Bailey (Regional England Manager). On Monday evening the Seal family received a phone call confirming Rachel had been selected for the Yorkshire Region England Under 16 squad, which is fantastic news. This will require Rachel to attend approximately 20 days of coaching through 2017 and travel to Sheffield Hallam on Tuesday evenings where she will have to go through a strengthening programme. Coaching starts immediately and will continue through 2017. Congratulations Rachel and also huge recognition for the coaching skills of Jack Carter.
