Hannah Botterman began playing rugby aged four for Datchworth and after eight years moved to play for Welwyn Girls.
Botterman was named among 28 England women players to be awarded professional contracts for 2019.
She has represented Hertfordshire, London & South East, England Under-18s and, most recently, the senior England squad.
The prop comes from strong sporting stock – her uncle, Gregg Botterman, represented England and made more than 100 appearances for Saracens and her aunt, Jane Everett, was also an England front rower.
Her strong performances in the 2017/18 season, which culminated in her scoring the winning try in the Tyrrells Premier 15s final against Harlequins, earned her England selection for the first time.
Botterman brought that form to the 2018/19 season with some barnstorming performances for both Saracens and England, playing an important role in both the Premier 15s title win and Women’s Six Nations Grand Slam.
