England women’s ace Caitlin Beevers is in the top 10 nominees for the 2019 BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year award.
The award is announced on Sunday, November 24, with the 2019 BBC Sports Personality of the Year event taking place at the P&J Live in Aberdeen on December 15.
The event will be broadcast live on BBC One, and hosted by Gary Lineker, Clare Balding and Gabby Logan.
Beevers has enjoyed a superb year in the women’s game, inspiring Leeds to the Women’s Challenge Cup and Women’s Super League titles.
The 18-year-old has also been to Australia and Papua New Guinea with England this year for the World Cup Nines and a two-match test series. She is also a match official with the Rugby Football League.
😁 Fair to say she's delighted to hear the news en-route from Papua New Guinea!
