Blighty U17 netball profiles:
Under 17s coach - Andy Lostroh. Kelsey Hislop (GK) Captain. Others follow her example. She is a strong defender, who consistently takes on the tough opponents.
Audrey James (GD) A super solid defender who is rarely beaten in defence. A strong competitor who gives her best every week.
Annika Bridge (WD): An excellent interceptor as she’s in the right place at the right time. She always defends the ball well.
Bianca Semple (WD/GK): A reliable defender who is able to put pressure on her opponent. She never gives up and will do whatever is asked of her. Jasmine Ackers (GS): Has stepped up from the Under 15s and has done a great job in goal shooter. Always keen to learn and her skills have really developed.
Lillie Harford (GA/GS): An accurate shooter and strong rebounder. She reads the game well and her strong leads are vital in moving the ball down the court.
Emmaline Weir (C/GA): A key asset in the midcourt, with quick paced netball allowing for smooth transitions. She never wastes a pass.
Mikaila Ackers (WA/WD/C): A very versatile midcourter who is the quiet achiever of the team. She can run all day and always gives you 100 per cent.
Ashleigh Simpson (GK/GD): Has had school commitments and has not played as regularly but fits easily into the team when back. Always encouraging and has strong hands in defence.
