A product of Roundwood Park School and Grove Junior School, Sarah McKenna took up the game at the age of six at her local club Harpenden, where her dad coached at mini level.

A versatile player, who is comfortable operating at fly-half, centre or full-back, she has played for for Scorpions, Old Albanian, Wasps and Saracens, where she was a key part of the latter’s 2014/15 and 2018/19 title-winning sides.

She made her debut for England at both XVs and 7s in 2011 and was a regular part of the England 7s team for a number of years though she impressed at the fifteen-a-side game when given the opportunity, including scoring a hat-trick against Australia in 2017.

McKenna made her return to Saracens for the 2018-19 season and became a mainstay for the team during the Tyrrells Premier 15s season, culminating in the team retaining their title with a 33-17 win over Harlequins Ladies.

She also started every game at full-back for England in the 2019 Women’s Six Nations as they secured a Grand Slam.

Growing up, McKenna played netball at county level and away from the pitch, she has a passion for squash and music, having turned her hand to a bit of amateur DJing.
