Netball names U21 team
Netball Samoa has finalised their U21 team to represent Samoa at the Netball World Youth Cup Gaborone 2017 in July.
Up to 40 trialists had the opportunity to compete for a position in the team over a series of training camps held in Samoa, Auckland and Gold Coast.
The team features twelve fresh new faces, uncapped players.
Netball Samoa Coach Lee Edwards says she is excited with the progress of the team over the last 12 months.
“The players have worked hard and are all deserving of their place in the team and the time is now to give them invaluable experience in the pinnacle competition for emerging players and play for their country.”
