Ky welcomes back homegrown talent

- By Tyler Maher

Kyabram has struck a huge blow in the Goulburn Valley League netball recruiting battle, welcoming back a pair of homegrown talents for next season.

A-grade midcourter­s Liv and Jemma Hall will wear red and black again in 2022 after an extended stint with 2021 minor premier Shepparton United.

The sisters have played away from Kyabram Recreation Reserve for the better part of a decade, but are Bombers at heart and looking forward to getting back to their home club.

"We're really excited to have two local Kyabram girls back at the club," Kyabram coach Sara Kent said.

"As we said on Facebook when we announced it, it's just great to have the Hall girls back where they belong, their little sister Ali also plays for us."

Kent's squad had plenty of youthful exuberance about it this campaign, but adding a pair of experience­d top-tier talents — who are already so familiar with the group — will help it collective­ly rise to the next level.

"They're very skilled and dynamic netballers," Kent said.

"They add a lot of experience and depth to the side, but they're also at the age where they are ready to take on leadership roles.

"They're going to be able to lead by example and have an impact on their peers around them as well as the junior developmen­t at the club.

"We're just all really excited to have them back and to know that they're coming on this journey with us."
