Natalie Miller, who was brought up in Uckfield, has been selected to captain England in the World Indoor Netball Championships, which take place in South Africa at the beginning of August.
28-year-old Natalie, who went to St Philip’s Primary School and Uckfield College, won a gold medal as part of the England team which became world champions in 2016.
Natalie has fought back from a serious injury just over a year ago, when she ruptured an Achilles tendon. She is now fully fit and is travelling to Birmingham for weekend training sessions in the run-up to the world championships.
Natalie, whose parents still live in Uckfield, also plays for the Sussex Thunder premier league team.
