16 March 2008 - Ella Gardner Makes National Screening
Ella Gardner stands out at Regional Screening and has been asked to trial at Nationals
Young Ella Gardner who joined Hucclecote last summer has gone on from strength to strength this season.  Already promoted from Tornadoes team, Ella has recently made apperances for the Thunder squad and is coping admirably in Division 4 helping them to gain promotion to Division 3 next season.  Ella, has also been attending the Gloucester Talent & Performance Centre for the past 2 seasons and was nominated to go to Regional Trials at Bath in February.  Her outstanding athletisim caught the eyes of the scouts and this weekend, Ella, along with 90 other national potential athletes attended Bath for national screening.  With some athletes released at lunch time, Ella found herself still in the thick of play, being asked to stay on for the afternoon as well.  This achievement alone is one to be proud of for such a young age.  Ella will hear within the next week if she has made it through to the next stages - an Easter Camp at Bath where England Youngsters will train together throughout the week.  We all wish her well.
