A huge welcome to Abby Miles, for whom eTeach are very pleased to be ‘kit sponsor', after she was selected for the England U21 Netball team at the 2019 Indoor World Cup in South Africa in August.
Abby is currently a sports coach at Perry Court E-ACT Academy in Bristol and found her job using eTeach’s #1 education only job board.
Marketing Director, Robert Webb commented: “I initially received a sponsorship request from Abby in early 2018, asking if eTeach could help her achieve her dream to represent England. At the time, all our budget had been allocated, yet, Abby persevered and I received monthly emails where she updated me on her selection progress. Now the New Year is hear, I am so pleased we can help in some way, not only as Abby is an extremely talented sportsperson, but because she is a fellow teacher and successful eTeach registrant. I admired her talent, perseverance and dedication, not only in receiving England selection, but the way she communicated to eTeach”.
Abby said “I am really excited about my selection to represent my country in the sport I love. I’m looking forward to training with the squad leading up to the Indoor Netball World Cup and hopefully achieving a gold medal for England. Eteach are very supportive of my journey and are kindly paying for my England Kit and Footwear for the Indoor Netball World Cup 2019. Eteach will have their logo embroidered onto my kit. I also work in a school in Bristol called Perry Court E-ACT Academy as the lead sports coach and found this job advertised via Eteach and was successful in the application process and interview"
Nets is a variation of netball that is fast, non-stop and very tactical. Although there are similarities with the rules of standard 7 a side netball, there are obviously a number of differences as well. The most obvious of these is that the game is played within an enclosed high tension cage, or ‘nets’
Abby also represented England Netball Nets U21 at the Redbull Switch Up tournament in November at the Copperbox Arena in London.
