Wheelchair Rugby Success for Wickersley Student

Y11 student, Hayley Cassin has been selected to represent the Talent GB Wheelchair Rugby Squad!

She started playing wheelchair rugby for Yorkshire Lions division 3 and stayed there for two seasons. She then made the move to Leicester Tigers Wheelchair Rugby Club in June of 2023. She now plays Premier League and division 1 in rugby 4s, the Paralympic version. Hayley also plays division 2 and development leagues in rugby 5s.

During her time with Lions she was asked to join the N.T.C (National Talent Camps). She has now joined the Talent Squad on their training camps, which are held once a month at Lilleshall Hall National Sports Centre and are run over three days.

The Talent Squad is where players are selected to play in the G.B Squad. When she was fourteen, Hayley played with the Talent Squad against the Netherlands. She has recently been nominated by the National Governing Body GBWR for a Sports Aid award for talented athletes. Hayley has also appeared on the recent ‘I Can Play’ videos for GBWR.

We are extremely proud and can’t wait to see Hayley on our screens soon, playing for GB!
