Lizzie was born in New York where her family lived for her father Mike’s work, moving to Scotland aged one, before settling in Milton Keynes to finish her studies at Bedford Modern.
On finishing her A-Levels she started a degree at Loughborough University studying Engineering, before switching to Maths with Economics after a year, before taking up a contract with England Sevens in September 2018.
She first played rugby aged 16 for Olney RFC before graduating to the Tyrrells Premier 15s playing for her university side Loughborough Lightning.
She was named in all three of England U20’s teams in 2018, coming off the bench in the side’s historic 20-27 victory against France in Lille.
She calls her father Mike her ‘second coach’ and lists the Loughborough Lightning coaches among those to have helped her in her career to date.
