Welsh Feathers Squad to face Ugandan She Cranes is Selected

Head Coach Sara Moore has selected her squad for the upcoming test series against Uganda.

The newly branded Welsh Feathers and number eight on the World Netball World Rankings will take on the Ugandan She Cranes who are currently ranked sixth. The two matches will be played in our home venue, House of Sport.

This will be the final opportunity for the Feathers to play in highly competitive test matches before they travel to Glasgow to compete in the World Cup Qualifiers.

Sara Moore has given newly announced athletes the potential to gain their first caps and blended them with a team of experienced internationals. The dynamic duo of Suzy Drane and Nia Jones will continue to captain the squad together. Whilst recently announced Vice-Captain Bethan Dyke will take her place in the captaincy team alongside teammates Clare Jones and Ella Powell-Davies.
