After the Tuesday night match in Liverpool, the action will then move to the iconic Copper Box Arena for the second and third games, which will take place on Friday 30th November at 19:00 and Sunday 2nd December at 14:15 respectively.
It promises to be a challenging, physical and closely-fought affair as the England Roses’ preparations for the Netball World Cup 2019 ramp up.
The She Cranes have developed rapidly over the last few years, rising from 15th (August 2014) in the International Netball Federation’s world rankings to 7th (April 2018).
During this period, they not only clinched their first-ever African netball title but became the first host nation to do so unbeaten.
Their triumph at the Africa Championship saw them qualify for their first Commonwealth Games, where they came up against Tracey Neville’s side in Pool B.
The England Roses narrowly beat the She Cranes (55-49) on their journey to gold with the African champions finishing in an impressive sixth place in their debut Games.
On their tour to England, they’ll most certainly be looking to demonstrate once again their talent and potential on the international stage.Fans of the Vitality Netball Superleague will recognise Uganda’s captain – Loughborough Lightning star Peace Proscovia.
Her inspirational backstory powerfully demonstrates what can be achieved through sport and demonstrates how the talismanic shooter embodies the spirit and determination of the She Cranes.
Our Roses supporters have shown time and time again why they are so highly thought of across the globe so our players can look forward to playing in front of thousands of noisy, passionate and knowledgeable fans!
