Netball World Youth Cup - Squad Announcement
Two Manchester Thunder players have been selected in the England squad for this summer's Netball World Youth Cup. Centre-courter Gabriella Marshall and shooter Amy Clinton will head to Gaborone, Botswana in July.
Amy Carter, who is a Thunder Superleague training partner, has been chosen as one of the reserve players for the tournament.
Thunder coach Karen Greig said: "I'm really proud of Amy and Gabs, having worked with both since they were 13.
"They have always showed willingness to learn and great commitment to get what they have been striving for.
They have both stepped up in VNSL this season and this is a great reward for them."

Thunder's hopes stung by Wasps
Manchester Thunder buckled under the pressure from a revitalised Wasps as they fell to a 58 - 44 defeat at the Thunderdome.
The Black and Yellows went toe-to-toe with their rivals in the opening period, but a lapse in concentration combined with a ruthless display from Wasps in the second quarter took the game away. In the second half, Thunder never recovered from that damaging passage of play and surrendered the chance to secure a place in the Final Four. Coach Karen Greig was unhappy with her side’s preparation coming into the game, with two of her key players - Amy Clinton and Gabriella Marshal l- missing training all week to take part in England u21 camps. She said: “The scoreline is not what we were looking for but it’s been a difficult week for us and not ideal preparation as we’ve not had the whole squad in at training at all. To lose two of our players out of training has not done us any favours.”

Featured Player 2017 - Kerry Almond
Kerry Almond almost joined the police when she was 19. Can you imagine a Manchester Thunder without those impeccably timed intercepts?
It may be difficult to believe, but despite being one of the most vocal players in the heat of battle on court, Kerry is noticeably reserved and quiet off it. She counts her mentor and team-mate early-on, Julie Lewis, as a vital ‘old head’ in front of her in goal defence, in 'taking a season' to get Almond to talk on court.
