Former Bridlington and Driffield rugby player Sophia Topham has earned a call-up to the Yorkshire girls under 15 squad for the 2015/16 season.
She started playing mixed rugby at the age of four, and has progressed to be one of the only a few girls to make it through all the age groups.
After beginning in her home town of Bridlington, at the age of 11, Sophia joined Driffield RUFC where she played her final two years of mixed rugby.
Due to the lack of girls teams in the area, she headed to West Park Leeds RUFC to play in an all-girls team. This enabled her to play against teams from further afield, improving and developing her skills, playing centre and wing.
Sophia is committed to travelling to Leeds every Sunday to play or train, alongside Yorkshire training on Wednesday evenings at Pontefract.
