Gia Abernethy of Strathclyde Sirens.

Strathclyde Sirens have announced the return of Australian mid-courter and captain Gia Abernethy to the squad for the 2021 season.

The 26-year-old has represented Strathclyde Sirens for the past two years and become the first non-Scottish captain of the side for the 2020 campaign.

Abernethy’s first season as captain was sadly cut short due to the Covid-19 outbreak she was an ever-present for Sirens in their opening three matches.

With the 2021 campaign due to take place in February next year, the mid-courter is more determined than ever to get back up and running after their home win against Surrey Storm in March.

Gia Abernethy said: “Last season got cut short after three games but we were so happy to get that win on our ‘final’ game, it would have been nice to get the first two wins on the board as well but it just makes us hungry and look forward to next season even more.

“Having experienced lockdown over the past few months you definitely take for granted seeing the team every day so I’m very much looking forward to getting back to training with the girls with some old faces and maybe some new ones too. I can’t wait to get started!”

As well as representing the only Scottish Vitality Netball Superleague (VNSL) club, Abernethy has represented Adelaide Thunderbirds in the Suncorp Superleague and the U21 Australian Squad.

She first had a taste of the Glasgow outfit when she filled in for them in the New Zealand Super Club Series, where she linked up with former teammate Cat Tuivaiti.
