Three Australian Diamonds squad members were inclusions in today’s list of team announcements for the 2017 national netball league.
Jo Weston and Liz Watson have re-signed with the Melbourne Vixens, with Paige Hadley re-signing with the NSW Swifts.
Vixens’ coach Simone McKinnis is excited by the Club’s powerful combination of youth, experience and ‘x-factor’ players, including Weston and Watson.
“It’s a really exciting time and we have a group who we feel very positive about and who want to be here as Vixens, and that’s the strongest starting point we could have,” said McKinnis.
For Swifts coach Rob Wright, Hadley forms part of a 2017 team list that represents an exciting new generation of Swifts who will continue the legacy of playing a fast, exciting and attractive brand of netball.
“The 2017 National Netball League represents a new chapter in Australian netball history, and I think this playing group perfectly articulates the new journey our Club is about to embark on,” Wright said.
“They’re a young, incredibly talented group who show a lot of potential.”
