Superleague Team

Team Northumbria

Team Northumbria is the name for top flight netball in the North East and is fast becoming a key player in a region renowned for its love of sport.

The Netball Superleague franchise of Northumbria University is at the heart of the community – based at the £30m Sport Central venue in Newcastle City Centre.

The 2016 Superleague roster brings together an exciting mix of players from across the globe – spearheaded by new Kiwi coach TeAroha Keenan. Sunshine Girls Nicole Dixon and Shanice Beckford have jetted into Tyneside fresh from an impressive World Cup campaign with Jamaica, while local favourite Leah Kennedy strengthens the North East contingent after being included in England’s Intensive Netball Training Centre Programme.
