U17 Development Squad to Compete in Netball Europe Tournament
Northern Ireland are hosting the U17 European Championships in Antrim Forum on 3-5 March, and final preparations are underway for the 12 strong squad who will compete in the Championship section against England, Scotland and Wales.
Running alongside the Championship section is a Challenge section for nations who are up and coming in the region, meaning there will be 3 action packed days of netball at the Antrim Forum in March. Netball NI were informed that one of the teams had to pull out and we were given the opportunity to enter a second Development Squad into this Challenge section, made up of those girls who were unsuccessful in making the final 12 for the Championship team.
This squad will be led by Lisa Bowman as Head Coach, assisted by Annabelle Jamison and Lisa Trainor will support them as Team Manager.
Netball NI are delighted with the opportunity for so many of our up and coming netballers to be given the chance to play at a Netball Europe tournament, especially in front of a home crowd so we hope that our netballing community will come out and support both teams in March.
