Firebirds bring back key duo


THE Firebirds added to their player signings for 2022, retaining Diamonds defender Kim Jenner and exciting midcourt player Lara Dunkley for next season.

After securing MVP Kim Ravaillion last week, the Firebirds locked in their younger talent, including Diamonds defender Jenner, currently is in camp with the Australian team ahead of their planned series against England.

Jenner backed up the breakout season that saw her added to the Diamonds squad last year with another solid showing this year but believes her best is yet to come.

And she was excited to be continuing her journey with the Firebirds. “This club has a proud history and legacy,” Jenner said. “We have unfinished business, and I am determined to take it to the next level with these girls.” Coach Megan Anderson said the Townsville­born goal defence was a key piece of the puzzle.
