Congratulations to two of our club players who have been invited to join the Superleague Loughborough Lightning Development squad. Laura Price & Nicola Caunt were members of the Regional Talent Development squad last year & whose playing talent is now being enhanced by weekly coaching sessions at Loughborough University. Both players will also be playing in matches in the England Netball Talent League which will take place before the Superleague matches.
This is a big commitment for these two players but one which gives them further opportunities to develop their potential in netball.
Both players are now members of the club's first team squad playing in the Premier Division of the league.

We are very grateful to our club members from the senior section & parents who have taken on responsibilities within the juniors as coaches/ assistant coaches/ team managers and umpires. Without their commitment, help, support, time & effort it would not be possible for our junior players to participate in the coaching/ training sessions on a monday evening and the various competitions.
