SEVEN members of the table-topping Hethersett Ladies team have been picked to play for Norfolk in the county's game against Huntingdon FA at St Neots on January 29.

Nicola Bray, Emily Coates, Sophie Fuller, Logan Shepherd, Jemma Smythe, Nicola Stolworthy and Jodie Allard are no strangers to the Norfolk team and join eight players from Norwich City Ladies and Sarah Quantrill from Arsenal Ladies in the 16-player squad.

It is testimony to the success of Hethersett, that they are one of only three clubs represented in the squad.
