Two Blessed Trinity students have received a county rugby call-up.

Olivia, 14, went for trials at Preston Grasshoppers and got snapped up for the Lancashire Under 15 girls team.

"It was really happy as I didn't expect it," said Olivia, who plays flanker for Burnley RUFC.

"There is a squad of 40 and we have played three games so far for Lancashire. It's really competitive."

Hollie, 15, had to take a step up to the next age group - the Under 18s.

"It was my first trial at the older age group and I didn't think I would get in as I am the youngest in the Under 18s. I am really proud," said Hollie who is prop for Burnley RUFC
