THREE teenagers from York Volleyball Club have been selected for England squads.

16-year-olds Will Miller and Ollie Quick are beginning their second year as part of the England talent pathway and have been joined in the national set-up by 14-year-old Luke Smith.

Players in the England system attend two-day camps every month at the National Volleyball Centre, which is based in Kettering, and are required to train at least three times per week.

Miller and Quick have moved up to the under-19s junior men from England cadets.

Miller is studying ‘A’ Levels at Tadcaster Grammar School sixth form.

He has been playing the sport since he was eight, but only started training seriously three years ago.

He currently plays for York Kings in the Yorkshire League and York in National Volleyball League (NVL) division two north.

He has also played for Yorkshire and represented England under-17s at last year’s NEVZA tournament in Denmark.

Quick, who attends Manor CE Academy, joined York VC in September 2016 and represented England in last year’s Home Nations Beach Volleyball Competition, eventually finishing fourth in the standings.

He is also an integral member of the junior squad at Yorkshire, becoming a regular in the York NVL men’s first team.

Quick also now trains weekly with the Sheffield Hallam University Super League squad.

Millthorpe School pupil Smith has been playing volleyball competitively for a year with Yorkshire League team York Lions.

He was one of the new players selected for the England under-17s cadets squad after an open trial at Kettering in December.

All three boys are looking for sponsorship to help with the cost of kit as well as travel to England camps and matches.
