The Surrey Storm Under-21 and Under-19 Squads for the upcoming National Performance League season have been named.

Featuring three Superleague Squad players, the U21s will be looking to build on their fourth place finish last season with a raft of the victorious U19 squad joining the ranks.

Led by Head Coach Emily Nemeth, who is joined in her coaching team by assistants Samantha Dell and Letitia Nicoll, is looking forward to the challenge of the competition.

“The girls are an exceptional group of netballers who have gelled incredibly well in a short amount of time.

“We have lots of hard work to do, but ultimately we are looking to make a huge mark on the league and have a great time doing it!”

The U19s, coached by Natalie Swift and assisted by Elaine Searle, are equally excited about the season ahead following a series of dominant pre-season matches and a comprehensive pre-season programme.

“Our U19s have been working tirelessly over the pre-season campaign, and are looking to really assert their dominance in the upcoming competition.” Nemeth continued.

“Natalie and Elaine have a very talented Squad, combined with the luxury of utilising our pools of U17 players as well – all of whom are working hard to be playing at this Elite level.”
