Young Pilgrim Tiana Hicks has been selected for the FA girls’ under 16s England Talent Pathway squad following four weeks of trials.

The 14-year-old, a member of the under 15s Boston United Community Football Club team, now trains weekly with the pathway squad as well as representing the Pilgrims in the Peterborough Youth League.

Tiana (pictured), who is also a newly-qualified referee, first joined the club at under eight level.

Her dream is to play for the England ladies’ first team.

Tiana’s coach Dwane Groves said “We’d like to congratulate Tiana on her outstanding performance and for her commitment - she is a fantastic role model and an inspiring player.”
