Emma StanleyContinuing the introduction of the Scotland Squad with Emma Stanley.

Being one of the longest serving internationals, joining at the age of 15 in 2007 I have represented Scotland in many competitions, including two EuroBowl competitions and the Four Nations tournament in Luxemburg, as well as having a major role in the recent Europeans.

I began korfball as a junior in Kent, playing at Invicta at the age of 7 before moving to Tornadoes Korfball club. From the age of 9 I represented Kent in regional competitions, coached by Frank Sieber, before finally moving to Bearsted to play in the top division of the England National league and winning both the South East Regional League 1 and the Promotional League 2014/15. In this time I also gained a Sport Scholarship at the University of Kent to study Law, was team captain for the University team and was recognised as the female MVP at the Southern University Championships.

Having secured a job in Edinburgh following graduation, I signed up to Edinburgh City Korfball Club and competed in the Europa Cup in Hungary. Following recovery from a knee injury, I am looking forward to returning to Bearsted in the new year, continuing my coaching with Bedford University and being part of a bright future with the national squad.
