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.
Australia’s Ashleigh Neal and New Zealander Keshia Grant led the Framlingham girls through a day of different skills and drills, aimed at improving performance and providing greater tactical insights.
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.
