Inspired by watching Netball Super League franchise Manchester Thunder from an early age, Berri Neil worked her way onto their pathway before being elevated to the senior squad in 2021.

“I have supported Thunder since I was a little girl mainly because of how amazing they are, and I have always respected the players.”

Before stepping up into the senior ranks at Thunder, Berri rose through the age groups at Oldham Netball Club, starting out at just 10 years old.

In 2017, Berri, captain of the U14 side at the time, was named the England Netball U17s National Academy.

Just a year later, Berri made her first appearance for England at U17 level playing in the Europe Netball Championship before going on a tour to Australia later that year with fellow current Vitality Roses’ Funmi Fadoju and Alicia Scholes.

The following year, Berri joined a senior England team at the Europe Netball Open in Northern Ireland where she helped take the title. A week later she featured at the Europe Netball U21 Championships where she claimed a second tournament victory.

After working her way through the Manchester Thunder pathway, Berri made her Netball Super League debut for the club on her 18th birthday in February 2021 against Strathclyde Sirens.

She joined London Pulse ahead of the 2022 season to gain more senior experience and this year Berri has been a prominent figure in the Pulse attacking end, forming a solid partnership with another Vitality Rose, Olivia Tchine.

In May 2023, Berri was elevated from the Future Roses programme to the Vitality Roses.

Later in the year, on 24 September 2023, Berri came on for her debut for the Vitality Roses against the New Zealand Silver Ferns in the Taini Jamison Trophy.
