Rhinos Netball NPL Squad 2022: Under-19s

Former clubs: Ripon Rockets, Leeds Athletic Netball Club

Defender Izzy Howse has grown up around netball. When her mum played, she used to go and watch her matches and always wanted to give it a go, and so began playing high-5’s in year 5.

At club level, Howse originally started at Ripon Rockets before moving on to Leeds Athletic, where she caught the eye of the Rhinos Netball NPL staff. She was a part of the club’s Under-15s academy in 2019 and Under-17s in 2020 before making the step up to the Under-19s this year.

In 2022, she was a part of a 12-strong England Under-17s squad that competed at the Europe Netball U17 Championship. She says that the selection to be a part of the Roses Academy in 2021 was one of her most memorable moments, as well as making her first appearance for the Rhinos’ Under-17s.

Howse looks up to her mum as one of her biggest influence because she initially got her into the sport and always supports her. Another influence is Maggie Birkinshaw because she was Howse’s U17s coach and she helped her grow in both skill and confidence.

Howse currently goes to school at Grammar School at Leeds.
