This is her 14th Year at WGS and Lucy has always played Hockey and loves going to the gym. WGS coaches spotted how talented Lucy was and kept encouraging her to take up Ruby, and Lucy finally gave in, taking the coaches advices and has not looked back since making this decision.

Her journey into Rugby started at the end of February 2019 and Lucy took to the game very quickly, enjoying the adrenalin when she scored a ‘try’.  Lucy started training and committing to the game and while attending The Rosslyn Park National Schools Rugby 7s Tournament with WGS, she got scouted by England Coach, Amy Turner. Lucy was invited to trials for Saracens and has since been training in their centre of excellence’. Saracens Women are a Tyrrells Premier Rugby side who are back to back champions of the Tyrells Premiership (2018 and 2019). They are part of Saracens RFC,  whose men’s side are reigning Premiership and European Rugby Champions.

“I was very surprised and happy at being selected to play for Saracens as I had only just taken up the game. I train with the squad once a month and I hope to be selected to start playing matches in the near future”. Lucy Lim
