THORP ACADEMY’S Maddy Graham was part of an impressive team that stunned clubs on the regional front as well as north of the border.

Maddy, a member of Thorp’s Elite Performer Programme, was a key member of the Ryton Under-15s girls team that headed to Scotland on tour where they defeated the Scottish National Champions in a 15 a-side game.

After returning to Tyneside, the Ryton girls embarked on a seven a-side series. Ryton were superb and have won all of their Northumberland, Durham and Yorkshire events so far.

They have come through three finals, playing a very strong and physical Castleford side in all of those.

The girls showed excellent resilience and intensity in all of their games and Maddy was at the forefront in all of her games. The club, coaches and parents are all very proud.
