Wasps have announced their full, 14-player squad ahead of the upcoming Vitality Netball Superleague (VNSL) 2022 season.

The Midlands outfit announced all of their players on deadline day and saw some new faces join alongside some key returnees from last year.

New arrivals included Lauren Nicholls from Loughborough Lightning, Christina Shaw from Celtic Dragons, Ellie Gibbons from Severn Stars and Lucy Parize also from Lightning.

Megan Thorne and Becky Gentle are the squad’s training partners this year while young England defender Rachel Fee makes the step up to the first-team.

Key outs include the likes of Sophia Candappa who joined Surrey Storm, Fran Williams, Amy Flanagan who is taking a break from the sport and Katie Harris who joined Severn Stars.

“As part of the evolution of the club, we are proud to announce the squad for the 2022 season,” said Wasps Head Coach Mel Mansfield.

“Alongside a vastly experienced core, we have selected an exciting group of talented, young athletes who we believe are the future of the club and bring the skill, hard work and key values that represent our club.

“We are proud of our history, and recognise that we are now looking forward to a new performance cycle with a greater presence of more local players from the region. We have a clear vision, strong leadership and have already had some great sessions with this group as we start the 2022 campaign.

“I am looking forward to getting to know this group and working with them as people and players, both on and off the court and nurturing the positive team culture that we have always been so proud of at Wasps.”

The full Wasps squad is as follows: Megan Thorne (TP), Caroline Tarnowski, Ella Powell-Davies, Gezelle Allison, Leah Goss, Iona Christian, Josie Huckle, Rachel Dunn, Lauren Nicholls, Rachael Fee, Christina Shaw, Ellie Gibbons, Lucy Parize, Becky Gentle (TP).
