Charlie Wilcock started playing rugby at just six years old, turning out for local side Fleetwood RUFC, with her family encouraging her to play sport alongside her five sisters and one brother.
Inspired by the likes of Chris Robshaw and World Cup winners Maggie Alphonsi and Heather Fisher, Wilcock fell in love with the sport and continued her club career with Preston, Vale of Lune, St Helens and Firwood Waterloo.
Receiving a call-up to the North England Academy in 2012 would prove to be a key moment in her rugby development, as that was the point when she realised she had the ability to play rugby at a high level.
The openside flanker excelled playing for Cardinal Allen High School - winning the School Games Player’s Player of the Year award in 2014 and followed it up with the 2015 Coaches Player of the Year award in 2015.
Wilcock has displayed leadership credentials by captaining Preston U15s, Lancashire U15s and U18s and North England Academy U18s – also showing her versatility by leading out the Lancashire U18s sevens team.
Having relocated due to work, Wilcock joined Worcester Valkyries in the summer of 2017 and made her debut in the Tyrrells Premier 15s defeat to Saracens in September of that year, winning the club’s Player of the Month award in October.
The back-rower, also a basketball fan and Liverpool FC supporter, is an established member of England’s U20s setup, having made her debut in 2016.
