Loughborough Lighting have confirmed that Vitality Rose Nat Panagarry will be back for the current Fast-5 All Star champions in the 2021 Superleague season.

“Last season was definitely a whirlwind and not the ideal situation I wanted to be in. I was really gutted that in the first five minutes of the opening game to get a fracture in my foot. It wasn’t the plan I wanted and then for the covid-19 outbreak to happen and the season end was certainly disappointing.

“My aim this season is to stay fit – I’m done with injuries. I’m always so thankful for the coaches because they always push us to better our game no matter what age you are and I’m always thankful for those younger players as they push me and get me running up and down because their fitness levels are phenomenal.”

Panagarry remains driven and has her sights firmly on a top-four spot:

“I think for the team the target is to always push for that top-four spot, but to get in that final after the year that everyone’s had would be incredible.”

Head Coach Sara Bayman was equally pleased to see Panagarry return to the side:

“It’s fantastic to have Nat back for another season. It’s important for us to maintain a strong core of players and Nat’s experience and leadership is crucial to us as a team.”

Panagarry joins Lightning’s star-studded roster for 2021 and with the likes of Commonwealth champion Beth Cobden, two-time VNSL winner Sam May, Ugandan shooting sensation Mary Cholhok and duel-international Ella Clark already revealed, Lightning’s final squad is set to be extremely exciting.
