England Netball

After being named Player of the Match in the first match of the Vitality Netball International Series against Malawi on Friday night, Kadeen Corbin won her 50th cap at the Copper Box Arena on Sunday.

Corbin was presented with balloons and flowers after the 61-53 win against the Queens and a montage of her career to date was shown on the big screen.

It was an occasion to be treasured for the London-born We Are Roses star.

She said: “It was so amazing and special.

“One I won’t forget as I love playing on home soil especially in my home town.”

Reflecting on where her international career began, Corbin

She said: “When I made my debut, I was so scared.

“I played a half against New Zealand and I missed my first six shots.

“When I finally scored, it was a relief and a proud moment to get my first goal in an England dress.

And the 26-year-old picked out a few key moments she’s enjoyed since making her debut in Auckland in October 2011.

She said: “My international highlights include being part of the England series win against Australia 2013.

“Another occasion was definitely being part of the Commonwealth Games 2014.”

But Corbin admitted she didn’t get off to the best of starts with England Roses.

She remains focussed, committed and ambitious though and knows exactly what she wants to achieve as a minimum over the next few years.

Corbin said: “I started off really rocky but the more times I got the opportunity to play, the more I learnt and the more skills I got to develop in my style of play.

“Today I’m still working hard to be the best I can be.

“My next targets and aims to be part of the Commonwealth Games and World Cup squads.”
