“It was really good. I was a member of the netball team, the badminton team, I think I was in every team they had,” she laughed.
Amy also plays volleyball and is a good athlete, but asked what her favourite sport is and without hestiation the answer is “football!”
She has played for the college and plans to join Brandon Lads and Lasses club in time for next season.
It's the club where she played as a youngster with the Lasses and in mixed teams too.
She also used to play for Lakenheath, having started playing at the age of seven or eight.
The former pupil of Methwold High School has had an operation on her toes and says she is now “back on track.”
Whilst attending college Amy has also worked part time on her dad's livestock farm and at Mr G's Bowling Centre in Brandon.
Her diploma course involved sports instruction, sports massage, teaching classes, creating sessions, planning and performance.
“I'm going to take a gap year and try and get a sports job and help my dad on his farm,” said Amy. “Have a little while out.
“I'm hoping to pass my driving test in a few months so I can go anywhere.”
