Vitality Netball Super League

Wasps Netball have announced the return of their Superleague winning captain Hannah Reid and defensive dynamo Sam May for the 2018 season.

Hannah Reid will take to the court for a second season in black and gold – as she leads her team in their Superleague title defence, having not missed a minute of Superleague action last season.

Reid, who plays at goal defence and goal keeper, was an ever-present for the team last season and lifted the trophy following the Grand Final win over Loughborough Lightning at Arena Birmingham.

Next season Reid will be looking to secure her fourth successive Superleague title, having won the competition with Surrey Storm in the two year’s prior to joining Wasps.

May – who partnered Reid in the defensive positions last season – is known for her defensive intensity and registered 53 intercepts in her first year at Wasps, the most of any Wasps player.

Since joining the team, May has been integral on and off the court, playing a key role in Wasps Community activities and hosting training lessons in schools across the region.

The defensive duo join Jade Clarke, George Fisher, Amy Flanagan, Sophia Candappa and Josie Huckle as confirmed players for the 2018 Superleague squad.

Wasps Director of Netball Tamsin Greenway is delighted to have been able to bring back two of the key figures from their title-winning season.

Greenway said: “Our main priority in the off-season has been to bring back the players who led us to the title last season, so I’m delighted to have Hannah Reid and Sam May with us again for 2018.

“They are two of the very best defensive players in the league and have proved time and time again that they can disrupt the league’s best shooters on any given night.

“Hannah Reid is a born leader out there on the court, last season she led our team by example and helped some of our younger players to build that all important winning mentality.

“Sam May is one of those non-stop players that every team would love to have – she was top 10 in the league for intercepts last season and I’m excited to see what she can do in 2018.

“We’re confident that we can mount a title challenge again in the upcoming season, our squad is already looking very strong and we are expecting to make more top quality additions ahead of the season.”
