seasons. This partnership will also incorporate Celtic Dragons netball
franchise for the 2020 and 2021 Vitality Netball Superleague seasons.

Newfields Law is one of the

advice. Newfields Law works with some of the biggest names in British sport
with clients such as the Rugby Football League, Stoke City FC and Saracens

Sarah

Newfields Law will also be providing expertise to the National Governing Body.

“Newfields
Law will provide Welsh Netball with the support it needs to operate
internationally in an ever-competitive global netball environment. Working with
Newfields Law will be hugely beneficial to our plans.

recruitment for the franchise as we look to
build on last season’s successes.”  

Glyn
Lloyd, Director of Newfields Law said: “We are very excited to extend our
support to Welsh Netball over the course of the next two seasons. Whilst of
course this opportunity complements our sport immigration work in elite rugby,
cricket and football in Wales, it more importantly signifies the weight we
proudly attach to the rightful and ever-increasing priority and recognition for
women in sport.

wish Welsh Netball and Celtic Dragons all the best in the coming seasons!”
