Following our earlier announcement, England Netball is delighted to confirm the England Roses squads selected for Fast5 and Netball Europe later this year.
Selection trials took place at Loughborough University earlier this week and two squads have been named to compete for the Netball Europe trophy in Cardiff and the Fast5 title in Australia.
The Roses head to Wales in early October as they look to retain the Netball Europe title they won in Newcastle last season.
The England Roses squad selected for Netball Europe is as follows;
Sasha Corbin (Captain), Natalie Haythornthwaite (Vice-Captain), Natalie Panagarry (Vice-Captain), Summer Artman, Eleanor Cardwell, Sophie Drakeford-Lewis, George Fisher, Jodie Gibson, Josie Huckle, Leah Kennedy, Gabriella Marshall, Vicki Oyesola
Reserves: Amy Carter, Amy Clinton, Iona Darroch, Razia Quashie, Francesca Williams
Later that month, it’s back to Fast5 action where England have had a successful history in the shortened version of the game, lifting the title in 2011 at the home of the 2019 Netball World Cup in Liverpool.
The current champions are New Zealand, the most successful nation in the history of the competition.
The England Roses squad heading out to Fast5 is as follows;
Ama Agbeze (Captain), Joanne Harten (Vice-Captain), Beth Cobden, Rachel Dunn, Jodie Gibson, Serena Guthrie, Natalie Haythornthwaite, Helen Housby, Gabriella Marshall, Geva Mentor
Reserves: Sasha Corbin, George Fisher, Jodie Gibson, Leah Kennedy, Natalie Panagarry, Razia Quashie
