Surrey Storm are delighted to announce Grace Sullivan has signed for the franchise ahead of the new Vitality Netball Superleague (VNSL) season.

Sullivan first started her netball journey with Storm at U17 level before heading off to study Sports Management at Loughborough University , where she represented Lightning’s youth sides.

She now returns to Surrey Sports Park and will join the list of Storm NPL products who have progressed through the ranks into the Superleague squad – including current stars Emily Gulvin and Alima Priest.

Grace will be looking to learn and develop from her fellow, experienced teammates in Leah Middleton, Alima Priest and Niamh Cooper.

Delighted to have made the jump to the VNSL, Grace said: “I am so excited and happy to be back home at Storm. I first started at Storm for U17’s and felt a strong connection with the team.

“Coming back from university into the Storm environment again, I have felt so comfortable and they have truly made me feel like part of the family.

“It is a dream come true to be involved with the Superleague team and I feel privileged and
so lucky to be able to wear duck egg blue once again!”

Director of Netball Mikki Austin added: “We are delighted to welcome back young gun Grace Sullivan into duck egg blue. Grace is everything we value here at Surrey Storm – Hard working, driven and coachable.

“Grace was a previous member of our NPL setup here at Surrey Storm before heading to
university.

“As a young and upcoming defender who has a fantastic work ethic along with the ability to
win the ball when you need it, Grace will be an asset to our squad for this coming season.”

This announcement is Storm’s eighth of the 2021 signing window with just nine days until Deadline Day on 30 October.

They had previously announced Yasmin Parsons, Emily Gulvin, Niamh Cooper, Alima Priest, Leah Middleton, Karyn Bailey and Nicola Humphrys would be with them for the 2021 season.
