A student from Hatfield’s University of Hertfordshire is leading an international team in the Netball World Youth Cup in Botswana.

Bethany Sutherland, who is studying sports science, is captain of the Scotland team in the African nation’s capital Gabarone.

In the tournament, which started on Monday, the Scottish team will play Sri Lanka, New Zealand, Northern Ireland and Samoa, with the final on July 16.

She said: “Playing against some of the best teams in the world isn’t something you get to do every day, so I’m going to embrace every second. Being captain is an even bigger honour and I can’t wait to lead the girls into court for our first game.”

The first game, against Sri Lanka, will be on Saturday.
