- May 23,2022
Congratulations to Anna Rice from St Dominic’s Grammar School, Belfast for winning the 2022 Erin Thomson Most Promising Young Player award.
Thank you to everyone that nominated netballers for the Erin Thomson Most Promising Young Player award - the quality of the nominations across the award categories, this shows that there is massive support for our workforce and players, we are truly are a #netballfamily.
Anna is a versatile and adaptable netballer, able to confidently play all positions on court with composure from GS to GK. She is committed to her craft and puts into practise everything she learns in training. Anna gives absolutely everything to her team, and is a talented performer individually but will always ensure to check with her team mates when she notices they are struggling. She is a team player in all aspects.
Anna has the confidence to step up when required and in fact played on our school senior team due to a series of injuries during a match. Anna was unphased by this and stepped in as though she played with these girls regularly. Anna is driven and determined in all aspects of the game. Netball in NI looks very bright with players like Anna Rice coming through. The talent and attitude she has at such a young age bodes well for the future of the sport in NI.
