Saracens Mavericks can today confirm that Jameela McCarthy has been unable to finish this season with the club due to medical grounds.

Trinidad & Tobago international McCarthy joined the Hertfordshire outing in the 2022 Signing Window and has featured three times for Mavericks this season.

McCarthy, a defender by trade, won six turnovers for Mavericks in a successful start for the two-time champions but the 26-year-old will play no further part in their campaign.

In a statement released on Friday 25 February, Mavericks stated: “Jameela was a highly valued member of the squad and we of course wish her all the best in the future.”

Head Coach Kat Ratnapala said: “People will always come first at our club and we would ask that everyone respects Jameela’s decision. She will be sorely missed in this 2022 campaign and we wish her a very speedy recovery.”

Mavericks next face fellow unbeaten side Manchester Thunder at Hertfordshire Sports Village on Saturday 26 February.
