We are so pleased to reveal that Bex Lowe will be taking over as the new Manager for Team UK, a position that was previously held by the wonderful Jemma Thripp.
Bex has been one of the national squad’s core players, competing in every international tournament since her debut in 2016. In her time playing for Team UK, Bex has collected a wide range of bronze medals from 2016’s World Cup & 2019’s European Games.
Bex’s quidditch career began by playing for Durham in 2014. Since then she has also played for Southampton, and now for the current BQC Champions, London Quidditch Club.
When asked about her aims as manager, Bex had this to say:
I’m looking forward to take on the role of TUK Manager in the run up to Richmond 2020. I’ve been [a] part of many different iterations of TUK, both as a player and as part of the management team, and I’ve seen how good management can make or break a team.
My aim as Manager is to get TUK to Richmond in the best possible position to claim a medal. The standard of quidditch has improved so much in the last couple of years, making Richmond 2020 the biggest challenge TUK will face.
Our route to success will need to build on not only the dedication of the players, but also the support of the community. So thanks for all that has been provided so far and thanks in advance for the coming year!
We’re excited to see Bex’s impact on the team, and wish all of them the best of luck moving forward towards Richmond 2020!
