Surrey Storm are delighted to announce Australian Goal Shooter Karyn Bailey has re-signed for the 2021 Superleague campaign, subject to visa clearance!
With a reputation as one of the top shooters in the Superleague, Bailey brings a wealth of experience and quality to the Storm squad.
The 34-year-old returns for a second season in duck egg blue after her maiden year in Mikki Austin’s team was cut short due to coronavirus.
Beginning her career with Queensland Firebirds, Bailey went on to feature for Victorian Fury and Melbourne Vixens.
With many accolades to her name, including an Australian Netball League Player of the Year Award, an ANZ Championship and the 2015 Melbourne Vixens MVP award, Bailey will be looking to add to her trophy haul at SSP.
She said: “It’s an honour to be back playing for Surrey Storm for the 2021 season.
“We have continued to build a formidable team and cement connections during this difficult time and I cannot wait to step back on court wearing the duck egg blue dress.
“A huge thank you to our fans for their continued support during this break, the times have been difficult and challenging but rest assured we continue to push for success for you all.
“Bring on 2021!”
Mikki Austin added: “We are thrilled to have a shooter of Karyn’s calibre re-signed for 2021.
“Karyn Bailey who has been a stalwart of the league for numerous years joined Storm in 2019 and brings so much leadership in our attacking end.
“Her playing experience playing both in the UK and previously in Australia speaks volumes to the type of player Karyn is and we cannot wait to continue working with her this season.”
