A 5’11” forward, Yea became a central figure on the GB squads of 2008 and 2009 despite still being some weeks short of her 20th birthday when the second of those campaigns came around.

Yea’s potential was spotted early by the Rhondda Rebels who signed her for the 2007-08 season after she had spent two seasons with the Sevenoaks Suns, her local club. Aside from a spell during the second half of the 2008-09 season, in which she played 11 games for Caceres in the second division in Spain, Yea has been with the Rebels ever since.

In 2007-08, Yea helped the Rebels clinch the EBL championship and also played eight games in the EuroCup, continuing her impressive basketball development which, by now, was also gathering pace at the international level.

A member of the England under-18 squad for two seasons and, subsequently, of the GB under-20s in the summers of 2007 and 2008, Yea earned her call-up to the full GB women’s squad later in 2008 as they competed in the A Division of Eurobasket, making her debut against the Ukraine and keeping her place on the team the following January when GB were required to take part in the relegation play-offs.

Damian Jennings says: “Harriett has been a key part of the under-20’s and on the fringes of the senior team for some time and is another promising youngster who could have a key role to play. She has a variety of offensive skills but I would categorise her as a well-rounded player who, at her age group, is very experienced and solid.”
