Wythenshawe basketball star
Newall Green High School student, Jade Mbam, in Year 11, has recently been given the honour of being selected to represent England as a part of the Under 16 national basketball team.
During the gruelling selection process, Jade was recently told by her coach that she has been put forward for selection within the Great Britain basketball team. Jade will attend a selection camp at Easter, and if successful, will go on to represent Great Britain in the European Championships this summer.
When asked how she felt about this opportunity, Jade responded: “It was a huge shock to be put forward for the Great Britain team. However I have been working so hard to be the best that I can be in basketball. I feel as though I am ready for this now and I’m excited to play against the best players in Europe”.
