Anabelle was introduced to Rugby in late 2015. From this, she took every opportunity to travel, meet new people and learn new skills. She has visited Israel, Ibiza , Dubai and France in the past few years, all to play rugby !
Anabelle has played for the Royal Corps of Signals, the Army Development team and Army first team (15s and 7s). In her spare time, Anabelle also plays 7s with a charity team called Scotty’s Soldiers, who support the charity Scotty’s Little Soldiers. She has also become heavily involved with them off the pitch over the past three years by raising money doing non rugby related events and challenges.
In her day-to-day profession, Anabelle is a serving soldier in the British Army with the Royal Signals (if you hadn’t guessed from her playing history!)
The Army helped her to realise her potential which has seen her proudly representing Gloucester-Hartpury for the past 3 seasons.
