A young England side defeated Wales 56-28 on the second day of U21 Netball Europe, which followed their victory against Northern Ireland the day before.
Thanks to some excellent feeds from Hannah Williams into Berri Neil, England stood strong and went into the interval with a 26-16 lead.
Wales refused to relent and at times started to close the gap between the two sides, however some clever maneuvering from England meant the third quarter came to a close with the score set at 37-21.
It was an energetic final 15 minutes, which saw Scholes come back onto court in place of Williams.
England continued to show great persistence despite Wales applying the defensive pressure and secured a 56-28 victory.
Funmi Fadoju said: “It was frantic at the start and they really made us work for it. Every single match has made us step up our game so we’ve really come on leaps and bounds as a team.”
After another jam-packed day of netball at the University of Worcester Arena, England will next face Scotland on day three of U21 Netball Europe on Sunday 6 October. The final day of the tournament will reveal the final placings.
Vice captain Alice Harvey said: “It feels really good to have the margins that we’ve had so far. It looks really positive going into tomorrow and we hope to have another good performance.”
