Surrey Storm is delighted to announce the signing of England captain Pamela Cookey for the 2015 Netball Superleague season.
Cookey, 30 previously signed for Surrey Storm in the 2012 Superleague season with stints at Team Bath Netball before and after.
Widely recognized as one of the world’s best attacking players, Cookey helped Storm reach the Netball Superleague final in 2012 and will be looking to help Storm go one better in 2015.
Cookey is still recovering from an injury to her Achilles during last season’s NSL third place play-off, which saw the national captain miss England’s Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games campaign, but she will now be making her netball comeback in Storm colours.
Pamela Cookey said: “It’s a massive year for me coming back from injury and running up to the World Championships. I feel I needed a new challenge, of which I think Surrey Storm will provide in a different environment.
“I am excited to see what I can contribute to the Storm attacking unit and hopefully help create the edge to push Storm over the line to take the NSL title.”
Tamsin Greenway said: “I’m absolutely delighted to welcome Pamela Cookey back to Surrey Storm this season. We’re looking to build on last year’s great performances and I’m thrilled that we’ve managed to acquire the best Goal Attack in the country.
“To play and train alongside the England captain is a fantastic opportunity for the players and the club. I’m sure the fans will be as excited as we are to see what we can produce on court this season.”
Storm and netball fans will get the chance to see Pam Cookey at the UK’s biggest Superleague netball match – Netball London Live – on Saturday 7 March 2015.
Returning for a second year to London’s Copper Box at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Surrey Storm will once again go head-to-head with local rivals Hertfordshire Mavericks in front of the Sky Sports cameras.
With 3,100 fans in attendance last year, this year’s event promises to be even bigger and better.
