Ellie Miles (born 7 February 1999)[1] is a women's rugby union player from Royal Tunbridge Wells, Kent, England who plays for Harlequins Ladies[2] in the Premier 15s[3] as a scrum half or wing.[4][5] She started her career at her hometown club Tunbridge Wells RFC and helped coach rugby at her school, Tunbridge Wells Girls' Grammar School before joining Harlequins Ladies.[6] She has been noted as an up-and-coming female rugby player.[7]

Career[edit | edit source]

Miles first started playing rugby union at Tunbridge Wells Girls' Grammar School.[citation needed] She then joined Tunbridge Wells RFC, for whom her father had played as captain and coach,[8] when they first set up their girls' youth team in 2014.[9][10] She eventually became the captain of Tunbridge Wells under-18s and used her position to help run and coach the rugby club at her school.[6] Later in that year, she was called up by the Kent Rugby Football Union to represent Kent under-18 Ladies and from there went to play for the London and South East under 18 Ladies team in both rugby union and rugby sevens.[9] She also represented England South East in the rugby sevens competition at the School Games in 2016 at Loughborough University[11] as well as in the national Division Series.[12]

In 2016, she joined Women's Premiership club Aylesford Bulls Ladies and captained Kent U18s again but was injured before being selected for London and South-East trials.[1] She remained with Aylesford during their rebrand as Harlequins Ladies for the first Premier 15s season.[13] After starting the season playing for Harlequins Ladies II[5] she made her debut against Worcester Valkyries as a substitute.[13] Miles made her first Harlequins start in December against Waterloo Ladies, where she scored a try.[14] In 2016, Miles was honored by the Turnbridge Wells government.[15][16]

Personal life[edit | edit source]

In 2016, Miles was nominated for her rugby volunteering work for a Tunbridge Wells Borough Council civic award for sports achievement.[17]
