Today (27/11/20), we celebrate the birthday of Kadeen Corbin as the Vitality Rose goal attack turns 29!
In doing so, we celebrate another year of Kadeen’s presence in the England set-up and her contributions to netball in the UK.
Kadeen has been part of the full-time programme since it began back in 2016 and has earned a mammoth 72 caps in almost a decade on the international stage.
She made her debut against New Zealand back in 2011 and most recently faced off against the Silver Ferns once again in the Cadbury Netball Series in October.
In between those two appearances, the 29-year-old has enjoyed a successful nine years in the red dress which included winning her 50th cap in November 2017. Most notably, Kadeen is a reigning Commonwealth Games champion from the history-making victory in Australia in 2018.

She has since played an important role for Head Coach Jess Thirlby since her arrival having been selected for every major squad since the Vitality Netball World Cup 2019.
Kadeen has featured in the shooting circle at the South Africa Series, Vitality Netball Nations Cup and Cadbury Netball Series in the last 12 months.
This has been, in part, due to her form in the Vitality Netball Superleague (VNSL) for her club Saracens Mavericks, where she plays with her older sister Sasha.
She is currently enjoying her second stint for the Hertfordshire outfit having previously represented the side from 2013 to 2015.
Most importantly, Kadeen is a role model for young girls across the country. The shooter started playing when she was just 12 and always has a smile on her face.
She also emits incredible determination – showcased by getting over missing the Netball World Cup in 2015 due to injury to get back into the squad for the Commonwealth Games three years later.
