2015 Bio:

The Lions’ Club Captain has had a good season, in the main, because so many around her shone. As such the collective helped their QB lead the Lions to another national title and with it too, the country’s number one ranked offense. A composed, resolute and competitive character, Kilby is most motivated by her team’s progress, which in itself, marks out much of her value to the club. One of the Lions’ many Great Britain representatives, expect her to feature at the European Championships.

2014 Bio:

Jo is the Lions’ captain (and one of its founding members). In setting the tone for her team, in respect to expectations, conduct and values, she has helped pave the way for the Lions’ success to date. The only Lion to have played every second of every offensive play in 2014, Jo’s impact has been significant to say the least; expect further GB honours this season.
