Biography

Alicia Scholes has enjoyed a dramatic rise through England’s age groups since her first international tournament at the start of 2018. Scholes, daughter of former Manchester United and England midfielder Paul, has risen from the U17 side right to the U21s in little over 12 months.

The mid-courter, who can play at centre or wing attack, impressed during her short stint with the U17 side after going on a tour of Australia and competing at a U21 Netball Europe Championship in Worcester.

Scholes was then selected for another tour of Oceania with the U19s before being selected in the U21 long squad for the Youth World Cup. In the following weeks, the Manchester Thunder player starred in the Netball Europe U21 Championships triumph in Northern Ireland in 2019.

For Thunder, Scholes continues to represent the franchise at youth level including various NPL Tournaments. She also plays an important role for Premier League 2 side YWCA Bury.
