What a surprise for the Under 14 Team Jets long squad as Serena Guthrie turned up to take their session!
Following training with the team Bath long squads, Tallula Norman and Libby Rothwell have been selected into the Team Bath U17 final squad and Anya Le Monnier has been selected into the U19 Team Bath squad. Congratulations to the three players.
Following the Training Camp in Jersey last month, Severn Stars invited Abbie Le Marquand, Molly Carre and Lily Jones to attend trials for U17 Severn Stars. Unfortunately Abbie and Molly are unavailable for the August tournament.
Lily attended the trial and has been selected for a second trial on the 11 July in Gloucester. We wish Lily every success next week.
Regional players Libby Rothwell and Tallula Norman had an exciting weekend as they played in an U19 South West tournament for U17 Team Bath Blues in Devon.
The girls performed really well and received a good amount of court team. The squad finished 3rd out of 8 teams losing only to the 2ns and 3rd finishers Teignbridge Titans and U19 Team Bath Gold.
Congratulations to Serena Guthrie who has capped off a breakthrough Suncorp Super Netball season by being named the inaugural HCF Most Valuable Player at the GIANTS Netball Gala Dinner at Sydney’s Australian Technology Park on Friday 23 June.In her first season with an Australian club, Guthrie featured in every GIANTS game in 2017 – making the Centre bib her own after traditionally playing the majority of her career in the more defensive Wing Defence position.
As a result, the English international was a dominant force in the GIANTS’ midcourt, commanding play in all thirds of the court to finish the season with 198 Goal Assists, 488 Feeds, 22 Intercepts and 49 Deflections – an average of 11.7, 28.7, 1.3 and 2.9 per game, respectively.
Congratulations to Serena Guthrie who has secured a place in the Full-time England Squad for the 2017/2018 Season.
The 2017/18 season will include two editions of the Quad Series, a three-match Series in New Zealand, the 2017 Fast5 tournament, a home International Series later this year and the 2018 Commonwealth Games in the Gold Coast, Australia.
