BIOGRAPHY

Rhinos Netball NPL Squad 2022: Under-21s

Former clubs: Mellor Girls, West Pennine, Leeds Athletic

Under-21s defender Megan Pilkington is in her second year under Francine Hall.

Pilkington’s first experience of netball was going to her mum’s practise when she was seven-years old and trying to get involved. Along with practising in the garden, she decided to join her local club, Mellor Girls, and started to enjoy playing matches. She went on to also play for West Pennine Netball Club and Leeds Athletic, where she won the Northern League’s most improved player in 2018/19, before joining Rhinos Netball. Her most memorable netball moment was returning to franchise netball after a season out with injury.

Her mum isa massive inspiration to Pilkington but also the coach of her mum’s local team, Paula, was always so encouraging and kind, she became like an Aunty to me. New Zealand international Laura Langman is also a big inspiration for the wing defence/goal keeper.

Pilkington currently attends Leeds Beckett University.
