A Trowbridge teenager is the latest to join the Bath Rugby Foundation apprenticeship scheme, and will be working on her coaching skills with the club.
Faith McEleny, 18, moved to Trowbridge with her family when she was still very young, going to Clarendon College and City of Bath College.
She joined Bath Girls Development in 2007 and began volunteering with the foundation in 2010, for which she was granted its 2012 Young Volunteer Award.
She will be working with Bath coaches on youth training projects such as Up&Unders and HITZ.
Having previously played for Melksham and Somerset U18s, Faith is now looking forward to her first season with the Bath Ladies team.
She joins fellow new apprentice Joe Aygul of Bath.
