Bury duo Grace Sinnott and Mark James have been recalled to the girls’ and boys’ England Under-15 basketball squads and will attend training camps over the Christmas period in Sheffield and Leeds respectively.
James, from King Edward VI School, survived the initial cut four weeks ago in Leeds and will return with a group of 15.
Sinnott, from St Benedicts School, who represented England last year, returns to her team after a good performance representing the East in Medway this autumn.
She is currently resting after picking up an Achilles injury, so it is unsure whether she will be ready in time for this next camp.
Both are applying to be Abbeycroft Young Sporting Ambassadors.
