International Netball Duo put school’s elite players through their paces

Framlingham College in England, welcomed two leading international netball professionals to put a selection of the school’s elite players through their paces on Saturday.

The duo are in the country after both signing season-long contracts to play for Superleague franchise Hertfordshire Mavericks in England, with whom Framlingham College are starting to build a working relationship.

The College’s director of sport, Nick Gandy, said: “We are delighted to be developing a relationship with the Hertfordshire Mavericks franchise. “We are very much looking forward to working closely with them in the future. “This includes hosting a two-day netball camp, which is open to the children from the local community in association with the Mavericks during the February half-term.”

Ashleigh Neal has joined the Hertfordshire Mavericks following a three-season stint playing with Demons in Australia, where she won numerous awards including League MVP and Player’s Player. Meanwhile, Keshia Grant is somewhat of a sporting all-rounder, have also represented her country in rugby sevens and javelin.
