Ella Bowen first earned a spot in the Roses Academy at just 15 years of age.

The defender was part of the squads that won U17 Netball Europe in early 2019, where she vice-captained the side, and U21 Europe Netball in 2021.

This year, at the Jamaica Series in January 2023, Bowen represented England for the Future Roses in a curtain-raiser match against the England Thorns.

After being named Player of the Season for Loughborough Lightning's U19 side in 2021, Ella received her first Netball Super League (NSL) call-up for Lightning in the 2022 season. She then moved to Manchester Thunder ahead of the 2023 season and has been a valuable asset to the team.

Ella has been named in the Future Roses programme for the second time for 2023-24.
