Speaking about her squad, U21 Head Coach Nikki Lloyd said “The squad will be led by a leadership group of captain Nia Evans and vice-captain, Charlotte Jennings-Evans, who will be supported by future leaders Ellie Blackwell and Alanah Heath-Drury”

 

“They have all demonstrated an exceptional work ethic and strong leadership skills throughout the last 18 months and beyond.”

 

Nikki said “I am delighted to finalise the 12 athletes selected to represent Wales Netball at the U21 Netball Europe competition in November.”

 

“This group of athletes have shown incredible resilience, patience and determination throughout the challenge of 2020 and all the disappointments they have experienced.”

 

“This talented group has a fantastic blend of athletes who all bring different strengths to the group”

 

“I am excited to see them bring them together and finalise our preparations in a couple weeks time, and to see them put their hard work to the test back on the European stage after a two-year break.”

 

The team will travel to the Isle of Man on the 11th of November. We wish them the best of luck.
