Young England U19 returns for more after debut season with Lightning

Moving to Loughborough in 2020, Liverseidge took up her first Superleague contract after rising through the ranks in Surrey Storm’s pathway. Now beginning her second year of a Sports Technology degree at LoughboroughUniversity, Liverseidge called Loughborough the perfect fit; 

I really enjoyed the balance between studying and playing on campus and being around all the athletes. It’s just a really good environment to strive and push yourself. 

My first year was really good it’s so nice having everything in one place. It was good to play BUCS and Lightning and the transition in between is really smooth as its similar staff and players, the facilities on campus just add to the ease of the programme. 

Liverseidge impressed the netball world at a young age, featuring in tours for both the England U17 and U19 sides, and starring in the U17 Netball Europe winning squad.  

Head Coach Sara Bayman expressed the importance of an injection of young talent to her squad; 

We’ve tried to recruit the best young English talent in recent years and these players are exactly that. We saw a glimpse of what they could do last season and I’m excited to see much more from them this year. 

With a strong start to the 2020 season, Liverseidge soon suffered an injury, causing her to miss the opening matches of the season; 

My first season was really mixed. In preseason everything was going really well, we won Fast5, we were training really hard and I got a few games in but then getting injured just as the season started was hard. I definitely took lockdown as a blessing to use the time to do my rehab, recover and then get myself fit again for when we came back. 

Having returned to campus, Liverseidge is excited to be back in preseason with the squad; 

Im back now, feeling good and excited to test myself out on court, I’ve had a lot of just fitness and running sessions over the past few months so its exciting to be back out there with the team and playing netball again! 

Looking ahead to the new season; 

Im really looking forward to having games back in the week, it really gives me a different structure having training leading into matches rather than just training on end, so just having a routine and getting back into it will be good. 

My aims for the season are just to get back out there, get some court time. Build on what I learnt last season and continue learning from the other players and team around me.
